As a professional driver, driving at night introduces additional challenges to a job that already requires a lot of attention.
- Low light makes it harder for you to see what’s around you
- Hazards can be harder to recognize at night
- Once you spot hazards, there is less time to respond
There are three major factors drivers need to focus on when driving at night: the vehicle; the road; and themselves, the driver. Recognizing the challenges that come with each factor, and how to deal with them, will keep drivers safe on the road.
This training is designed to help drivers learn how to improve their safety while driving at night.
After completing this program, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the factors that affect safe night operation as they relate to your vehicle, the road, and you, the driver
