Escort car services go hand in hand with heavy haul transportation. Escort cars, also referred to as pilot cars, are equipped with a variety of things that help make heavy load transportation safer. Pilot car service helps to ensure the safety of the equipment you have to transport, the heavy haul driver and the public.
Escort Car Equipment
An escort car typically carries an eye-catching sign that warns other drivers that a heavy load is following. It usually has flashing lights, flags that catch the notice of others on the road, and a CB radio for communicating with the person driving the oversized load. These cars also carry maps and emergency equipment, such as fire extinguishers and first aid kits, in case unforeseen circumstances happen to arise.
At ATS Specialized, our drivers are highly trained and take great care with safety. Carrying an oversized load, however, creates unique safety concerns that an escort car can help to address. An escort car driver ensures that everything from switching lanes to crossing bridges is safe for the heavy haul driver, his load and everyone else on the road.
