Fleet drivers are driving longer hours and more miles than ever before. And they’re doing it in heavier traffic with more regulations. Worse, more and more of the drivers around them are on their smartphones, driving aggressively, or totally fail to drive in a predictable or safe manner.
That's why your company needs defensive driving for all your drivers. Pro-D.E.F.E.N.S.E. teaches the skills and the mindset to keep your fleet safe.
While the concept of “Defensive Driving” has been around for 50 years, the changes on our highways called for an update to apply it to modern roads, vehicles and drivers. This re-evaluation over the past 10 years has led us to develop the PRO-D.E.F.E.N.S.E. system of defensive driving.
The PRO-D.E.F.E.N.S.E. system has been fine-tuned for the three different vehicles types: Heavy Duty Trucks and CDL drivers, Box trucks and delivery vans, and sedans and light trucks.
Defensive driving means being safe in spite of the conditions and actions around you.
These are the fundamentals to PRO-DEFENSE. Being able to incorporate them into your driving habits will mean that you are effectively driving defensively.
Safety happens one mile at a time.
When we built out PRO-DEFENSE, we were drawn to the story of the tortoise and the hare. With defensive driving, slow and steady wins the race. Rushing and taking short cuts will eventually cost your drivers time and money as the inevitable accidents happen.
Following the PRO-DEFENSE driving program will mean that you complete that journey safely and accident-free, every time.
