Many jobs require employees to travel via car or truck, and there are a number of risks to personnel and material associated with land transportation of this sort. This unit emphasizes the importance of observing local traffic laws and regulations and details best practices for traveling on roads. Students will also become familiar with how to address hazardous conditions, parking, and dangerous behaviors behind the wheel.
