The Smith5Keys® to Backing Safely


The 5 Keys to Backing Safely


Conservative collision statistics estimations reveal that per mile driven, reversing a vehicle can be more than 130 times more dangerous than driving forward. This video program reveals a unique and very relevant string of problems, circumstances, and vehicle design issues that are not present in forward-motion driving. These problems are almost always at the heart of preventable backing incidents. Drivers learn why backing is so disproportionately hazardous and they are taught an instantly usable sequence of easy to learn and simple to apply tips that will make backing collisions much less likely.

If you are seeking a solution-driven approach to minimizing these dangerous and frustrating events, this production should be a well-used addition to your safety film library.
