..ROGER THAT.. 

Same same, but different !

Fellas, Ladies,

You might not have noticed it but 10 days ago, on the 21 March, at 10:58 am we experienced this years autumn equinox. Equinox means "equality of night and day" and describes the moment when our sun is exactly above the earth's equador before then "moving" to the other hemisphere. 

For the next 6 months, the sun will be "based" in the Northern Hemisphere and, as every year, our days here in beautiful little New Zealand will be shorter than our nights. More importantly, the sun will be sitting much lower in the sky and will have much less power than during Summer. You will experience sun glare, wet roads, muddy forest tracks, cold temperatures and grumpy drivers you'll have to share the road with. With the wet weather, pot holes and cracks in the roads will start to appear as they seem to do every year which again will make safe driving more tricky and not help the mood of your fellow road users. 

As always, I urge you to continue to take good care while operating any kind of vehicle or machinery:
- Keep your windshields clean, inside and outside. 
- Use your sunglasses to combat sun glare, don't store papers or other items on your dashboard that could create reflections in your windscreen.
- Turn your headlights (or daylights) on to increase your visibility to other drivers
- Go slow, adapt your speed to the conditions, always stay below the speed limit!
- If you believe a road/track is too wet or unsafe to be used, stop and contact your dispatcher before using it!

It is important that you keep up all our operating standards : Daily pre-checks, fault sheets, always follow dispatcher instructions, time-sheets & logbook requirements, no speeding!, etc. You know the rules - stick to them !

Stay safe out there, take care of yourselves and others, and be the best you can be - every day!

Stan
