This module is designed to teach drivers the ins and outs of driving at night. Since collision fatalities are 3 times as likely at night, participants will learn: the dangers of night driving, the effects of glare and limited visibility and tips on how to stay safe while driving at night.
This module examines the most common mistake made on the road today, speeding. The participant will learn: how speeding affects the control over a vehicle, how it affects total stopping distance and why the ‘other guy’ on the road should be taken into consideration.
Safe Highway Driving
This module teaches drivers about some of the main causes of highway collisions as well as safe highway driving techniques. Some of these techniques include: safe merging, freeway speed, acceleration and reaction time, space cushioning, safe lane changes and safe exiting maneuvers.
Onboard Technology Distractions
Navigational tools and other in-vehicle technology can interfere with a professional driver’s focus on the road. This course explains how to minimize potential in-vehicle distractions, and why it is important to rely on safety, not technology, to manage the complex tasks of driving.
Fuelled by anger or frustration, aggressive drivers become a hazard by ignoring right-of-way rules, weaving through traffic, and speeding. This course discusses common behaviors associated with aggressive driving, and how managing speed and space, as well as emotions, can help professional drivers avoid aggression on the road.
Avoiding the Worst Collisions at Intersections
Accidents at intersections account for nearly half of all road injuries and deaths. This course discusses the factors contributing to the three worse types of crashes at intersections, and provides key defensive driving techniques to improve safety when either turning or crossing through an intersection.
