Rev Skills Up in Defensive Driving Course

Posted:

If you're traveling in your vehicle for the holidays, there's no time like the present to rev up your driving skills.

The North Dakota Safety Council holds a course that explains how and why you should be a defensive driver.

Program Director Don Moseman says most vehicle crashes are caused by distractions with cell phones being number one.

This combined with slippery road conditions can put you at risk.

He says even if you've lived in North Dakota your whole life, there are still skills and techniques that you may not have learned before.

"Traditionally in any community, the first measurable snowfall where it actually sticks to the road is the highest crash rate for the entire year. It's almost like as human beings we have to re-learn everything every year and North Dakota's no different," says Don Moseman, Program Director, NDSC.

If you're interested in learning about or taking a defensive driving course, you can go to www.ndsc.org.
