Speed of Pickups when Passing Graders

Location: 
Polar 200 Rd
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
2007-09-26
Company Name: 
Canfor Woodlands
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

I received a report on September 26, 2007 from a gradermen operating on the Polar 200 Rd that pickups are passing him at high rates of speed.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

As per Rule #2 of the Canfor Rules of the Road/Radio Calling Procedures all drivers shall slow down for oncoming traffic, when passing a stopped vehicle, and when meeting any road maintenance equipment. The expectation is that all traffic including pickups must slow down to 15 km/hr and slowly pass road maintenance equipment.

Could all harvest contractors (quota and private) please remind their crews driving pickups of the importance of slowing down when approaching a grader or other road maintenance equipment on the logging roads.
