J. J. Keller & Associates Inc. has just introduced Right Turns, Left Turns and Intersections: A Guide to Tight Spots and Dangerous Crossings, a new training program designed to train tractor-trailer drivers
on accident prevention techniques related to turning and crossing intersections.
A closed-captioned video anchors the program. It demonstrates turn and intersection techniques for a variety of situations, including city and rural driving, single and multi-lane roads, narrow streets, one-way streets and roundabouts. The video uses animation, narration and dramatic live footage to explore common problem areas and hazards as well as to communicates straightforward instructions for executing maneuvers more safely.
Among the topics covered are: anticipating blind spots, using mirrors, allowing for off-tracking, speed and space management, route planning, intersection etiquette and hazard perception.
In addition to the video, the program includes a trainer’s preparation guide with presentation tips, ideas for getting drivers involved, and a 10-question quiz with answer key; 11 driver skills cards featuring left and right turn “do’s and don’ts,” as well as intersection procedures; and two illustrated posters that reinforce key concepts.
A Trainer’s Tools CD-ROM is also included and contains a 40-question quiz bank and answer key, transparency masters, clip art, awareness posters and a training log. These tools can be used as-is or customized. Text can also be transferred into PowerPoint presentations.
