Cost: Free to Members and Self-Insured Clients
Join us for a webinar that will teach defensive driving techniques and provide strategies to protect you and your drivers from distracted drivers! Driving is hazardous and since COVID-19 started in 2020 the number of accidents and severe injuries and fatalities has risen. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) “While Americans drove less in 2020 due to the pandemic, NHTSA’s early estimates show that an estimated 38,680 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes—the largest projected number of fatalities since 2007. This represents an increase of about 7.2 percent as compared to the 36,096 fatalities reported in 2019. Preliminary data from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) shows vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in 2020 decreased by about 430.2 billion miles, or about a 13.2-percent decrease.” Participants will learn about risky driving behaviors and techniques to stay safe in these challenging conditions.
