Defensive Driving - Small Vehicles
Imagine you are driving down a quiet neighborhood street one afternoon. Your phone rings and you take your eyes off the road for just a second to see who it is. In that moment, a man on a bicycle swerves into your lane to avoid another vehicle. It’s too late to avoid a collision and you hit him. Neighbors who witnessed the accident rush to help and someone calls for an ambulance. When the emergency medical technicians arrive on the scene, they find that the cyclist has died. How would you feel, standing in the road in that moment and watching the emergency medical technicians determine the man is dead? What if you face criminal charges or time in jail? How will you feel weeks and months later when you possibly lose your job, lose your driver’s license, face lawsuits and media coverage, and wake up every morning knowing someone is dead because of your actions? NO ONE wants to be the person who causes this kind of accident. All too often, we think that these kinds of things happen to other people – never to us. But the truth is that this kind of accident can happen to anyone. A single moment can change lives. That’s why your employer is asking you to take this training – so that you can understand the common mistakes drivers make and how to avoid them.
