The 5 Point Driving System: The Habits of Professional Drivers

  1. 1. The 5 Point Driving System The Habits of Professional Drivers Most crashes are the result of poor driving habits. Good driving habits prevent injuries and save lives. Practice good driving habits at ALL times - on the job and off. “It’s the small details that make a great company”
  2. 2. Aim High In Steering     Look as far ahead as you can Don’t look only directly in front of your vehicle while driving See potential problems well ahead of you so you have time to react. Visualize a safe path well ahead so you are prepared if problems occur.
  3. 3. Get The Big Picture  Stay back and see it all  Don’t follow so closely that it prevents you from seeing the big picture ahead  Stay back from the rear of a tracker-trailer or any large vehicle  Not following closely allows for smooth stops and turns, and buys you reaction time
  4. 4. Keep Your Eyes Moving  Avoid fixating your eyes on any one object.  Make sure to look to your rear every 5 to 8 seconds.  Continually moving your eyes maintains your sense of awareness in all directions and driving conditions.  Scan, don’t stare. Keep eyes moving and scanning all around your vehicle; front, rear, sides.  Scan from building to building, tree-line to tree-line.
  5. 5. Leave Yourself an Out  Imagine an ‘escape route’  Be able to recognize the path of least resistance quickly when problems occur  Leave yourself and out by creating space on all four sides-especially in front of you  Be prepared. Have a plan. Expect the unexpected.
  6. 6. Make Sure They See You  Make sure other drivers can see you  When necessary, you should communicate in traffic by using y our horn, lights, and signals. This helps establish eye contact with other drivers  At intersections, look at driver’s head and eyes to be sure they see you coming  Stay Off Your Phone and always wear your seat belt.
  7. 7. Your customers expect you to get it right. Right product, right quality, right on time. Shouldn't you expect the same from your security guard provider?
