What are The Smith5Keys®?
The Smith5Keys help drivers see, think and act their way through various driving environments, challenges, and changes that exist regardless of where they travel or the vehicles they operate. The Smith5Keys are designed to provide drivers with the knowledge and skills to create three important things while driving:
- Space to maneuver their vehicle away from conflict
- Visibility to detect danger and the potential for conflict with another vehicle or fixed object early
- Time to react to volatile and complex driving environments
