On Thursday, December 10, at 1:00PM Eastern time, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will hold a web based tutorial that introduces practical usage of their on-line Web-Based Driving Tips for operators of Commercial Motor Vehicles. Many vehicle operations are not aware that these are available to the public.
The Web-Based driving tips include aspects of driving such as:
- Safety Belts
- Too Fast for Conditions
- Unfamiliar Roadway Travel
- Inadequate Surveillance
- Driver Fatigue
- Driver Distraction
- Following Too Closely
- Inadequate Evasive Action
Each topic is supported with the use of real-world video clips (generally 25-30 seconds). The video clips are designed to show operator errors in various driving scenarios.
To encourage utilization of these training tips, the FMCSA is hosting a free web seminar to demonstrate and train the public on how to best utilize this service. Registration is open now, and can be accessed by clicking on the link below. Additionally, a link is provided to the actual Web Based Driving Tips web site.
