With winter rolling in, it’s time to start thinking about chain laws and how to use tire chains. Just as each state has different laws regarding their use, each trucking company has its own policy on whether or not you’re required to use them as a truck driver when the roads get bad. Some companies require their drivers to use tire chains to deliver sensitive freight, while other companies don’t require drivers to use them and instead advise them to get off the roads. (Anderson Trucking Services (ATS) falls into the second camp.)
If you’re like most truck drivers, you’re looking for a way to make more money.
