Driving is something that many people do every day. In fact, for some people, driving is part of their job. When you are driving, taking your eyes and mind off the road for even a few seconds can result in an accident. By failing to give full attention to the road, distracted drivers put themselves, their passengers and everyone else on the road at risk.
These courses are designed to help licensed drivers remember some key safety information. You can use them for initial training of new hires, refreshers for experienced drivers and remediation for drivers who are involved in near-misses or accidents.

This course focuses on the common causes of rear-end collisions and what drivers of large vehicles can do to reduce the risk of being involved in such a collision.
