Anticipating The Other Motorist: Sudden, unexpected hazards may leave 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.

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.

Avoiding Rear-End Collisions: One of the most common crash types, rear-end collisions can leave a 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.

Maneuvering in Tight Spaces: Parking areas can be challenging to navigate, and misjudging the space a vehicle needs can lead to costly fender-benders and minor scrapes. With a focus on defensive parking strategies, this fleet safety course explains how to identify low-risk areas and monitor space at all four corners around a vehicle.

Onboard Technology Distractions: Navigational tools and other in-vehicle technology can interfere with a professional driver¹s focus on the road.

Inappropriate Speeds for Conditions: A speed that is safe in one situation could be dangerous in another. Explaining how inappropriate speeds ‹ whether too fast or too slow ‹ impact road safety, this course provides examples of driving conditions that require speed adjustment and offers drivers techniques to maintain a safe speed.
