  • 11. 11 September 2012Backing up - safely"According to the National Safety Council,one out of four vehicle accidents can beblamed on poor backing techniques.Backing accidents cause 500 deaths and5,000 injuries per year. Get to know a vehicle’s blind spots. In a medium sized truck, blind spots can extend up to 16 feet in front and 160 feet behind a vehicle. Drivers need to remember that mirrors can never give the whole picture while backing. Think in advance. Drivers should not put themselves into unnecessary backing situations. Park defensively. Drivers must choose easy-exit parking spaces that don’t crowd neighboring vehicles and park their vehicle in the center of the parking space. When parking in an alley. If an alley doesn’t permit driving all the way through or room to turn around, a driver should back into it (if local ordinances permit) so that when leaving the vehicle can pull forward into the street.
  • 12. 12 September 2012 Backing up – safely cont’d Do a walk-around. Walking around a vehicle gives a driver firsthand view of the backing area and any limitations. They can check for children, soft or muddy areas, potholes, tire hazards, and other dangers. Know the clearances. When performing a walk around, drivers can check for obstructions, low hanging trees and wires, and any other potential clearance-related problems. Every backing situation is new and different. Sometimes a driver visits the same location several times a day and should be watchful each visit for changes and any new obstacles. Use a spotter. A driver should use another person to help them when backing. The driver and spotter should use hand signals not verbal.
