The leading cause of all occupational fatalities each year is highway accidents. There are so many other hazards to think about that we forget how hazardous a road trip can be. Whether you are traveling from one job site to another or just leaving the job site for lunch, don’t forget to drive defensively.
Defensive driving means anticipating what other drivers are going to do and adjusting your driving to avoid a collision.
