Driving is a complex task. Driver error contributes to over 75% of road crashes. No matter how many years experience you have behind the wheel, it’s important to keep pace with current trends in road safety, be aware of our responsibilities on the road, understand how to respond to adverse situations and develop a safety-first attitude on the road.
