Safe Backing (with or without a trailer)
Driving forward is getting harder and harder to do given the number of vehicles on the road nowadays, but backing up is still one of the most difficult tasks to perform. Most new vehicles have back-up cameras but they are not your saviour. A driver must rely on their ability to “read” the environment in a 360 degree fashion at all times, but especially when backing. And the best way to achieve that goal is with professional training.
