Here at work on the North Slope we are required to do 2 things before moving any vehicle; 1) do a 360 degree walk around looking for objects in our intended path and to check our vehicle for any issues. 2) use a potter for backing up any vehicle larger than a pick up truck. I have taken this process home with me. I encourage everyone to adopt this policy. A damaged mail box or Rv, while inconvenient, it is nothing compared to the grief a grandfather felt where I live after he backed over his grand daughter.

Another poster talked about his vehicle popping into gear after he had exited the vehicle. Last year a contractor here was killed when his running truck pinned him against a pipe. We have now installed alarms on our vehicles that sound if the door is open while the vehicle is in gear. Not suggesting everyone do this just be careful when you exit a running vehicle.

lists and more lists

As I age I found lists keep me on course, If I stay in a park for a time, I tend to forget somethings that I put down, unrolled, or displayed. So I have a checklist that I created, and as I check on an item I check it off. it's the only way I can move forward without listening for a clunk, rip, or scream.
