Every profession has terms and abbreviations of it’s own. Sometimes unique, and sometimes re-purposed or re-cycled from general usage. Here are a few terms and abbreviations that make our communications more efficient:
Blind Spot – Areas around a commercial vehicle that are not visible to the driver either through the windshield, side windows or mirrors.
ETA – estimated time of arrival
Tail Swing – the distance between the rear axle and the end of the bus. The rear tire acts as a pivot point for the end of the bus which swings out when you turn. BE AWARE – This can cause that back section of the bus to strike an object (car, bike, person, pole, etc.) if you are not careful.
Use the highway, don’t use the highway. Use side streets, don’t use side streets. Rush hour strategies vary depending on who you talk to, and the smart choice is the one that works out for you. This post is under construction. Please provide tips via comments for alternative routes.
