More than a quarter of all work-related fatalities occur in occupations that require driving, or the transportation of goods, making the need for defensive driving skills evident. To avoid injury, or worse, death, drivers need to understand what defensive driving means and what unique challenges a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) driver faces... even for veteran drivers.
Defensive driving involves intentionally driving in such a way as to reduce the risk of an accident. This program is designed to help drivers develop their defensive driving skills.
After completing the program, drivers will be able to:
- Explain how being prepared impacts defensive driving
- Identify ways to communicate with, and receive signals from, other drivers
- Demonstrate how to look for hazards by scanning the road ahead and using their mirrors
- Recognize how to manage speed and space effectively
