This module is designed to instruct drivers on proper parking and backing techniques. It covers: hazards of parking and backing, common parking lot collisions and five defensive parking techniques.
Avoiding Rear End Collisions
One of the most common crash types, rear-end collisions can leave a professional driver with severe injuries ranging from whiplash to death. In this course, drivers will explore techniques to better manage their speed and space, such as properly scanning the road, maintaining a safe following distance, and practicing safe lane discipline.
Avoiding Collisions with Pedestrians & Cyclists
This module teaches drivers the danger pedestrians and cyclists pose to drivers. The participant will learn why collisions with pedestrians and cyclists occur and techniques to keep all road users safe.
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.
This module takes a look into potentially deadly distractions which may occur behind the wheel. Drivers will learn about: the hazard of driving while using a cell phone, the most common distractions on the road and how minimize and avoid them while driving.
Anticipating the Other Motorist
Driving hazards can leave a professional driver only seconds to act. With an emphasis on defensive driving skills, this course explains how right-of-way mistakes can lead to unpredictable, often dangerous situations, and why it is important to identify problems early and use space to avoid hazards.
