Snowplow Defensive Driving
Driving defensively in order to reduce the risk of accidents is difficult enough while driving a car – let alone a large plow truck with snow, ice and reduced visibility. This is where a defensive driving course can be of tremendous benefit, even to the most experienced operators. Operators will learn to prioritize their work and understand where to look, when. Not only does this training program reduce the likelihood of problems, it promotes operator confidence and efficiency.
