Motor vehicle crashes are regarded as the 9th leading cause of death globally. With the lives of about 1.9 million expected to be taken annually by 2020. When a company’s driver or any other staff is involved in a crash, it attracts a lot of indirect costs (whether the worker was driving on or off the job) like recovery time, repairing, hiring other vehicle, re-staffing, retraining and lost productivity. A Harvard risk analysis study estimated the annual cost of crashes caused by distracted driving to be $43 billion. And the end of the year is known to be peak for most crashes.
Avoiding a collision in driving, goes beyond mastery of the rules of the road and the basic mechanics of driving which students get from a basic driving school. DDC 8/6 is highly interactive, with the goal of providing drivers with practical knowledge and techniques to avoid collisions and violations. Its aim is to reduce the risk of collision by anticipating dangerous situations, despite adverse conditions or the mistakes of others.
Individuals and Businesses that adopt the DDC 8/6 program as their best driver safety practice show their commitment to safety for employees, their families and the public.
Everyone has the responsibility of ensuring safety on our roads, everyone has to be trained.
