Dealing with the Dangers. Distracted Driving.
You’re a good driver, so why should you care about distracted driving? The reality is that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to leave handheld devices out of view, whether you’re sitting at your desk or in the driver’s seat.
In this webinar, you will learn about the importance of attentive driving and will be able to understand better how vision works while driving, and how to recognize hazards in advance.
The session will cover the difference between peripheral and acute vision and how a driver can actively identify all potential hazards while driving.
Tips on how to avoid being distracted while driving to reduce crash frequency will also be explained.
