Safe Performance at Night approaches fleet driver training from a non-traditional perspective.
It stresses the reactive aspect of driving and provides participants with special insights and skills for dealing with night driving, including:
- Generating awareness of the potential dangers in a night time driving environment.
- Getting participants to understand the role of vision, speed, friction, attitude and risk on the road.
- Developing night hazard awareness and vehicle control skills, and applying them in simulated emergency situations.
