Smith System, which specializes in advanced driver training, is launching a series of new training DVDs to address such timely fleet safety topics as drowsy driving and driver assistance technology.
“Driving Drowsy” and “Driving Technology” are two new programs, along with a refresh of Smith System’s core method video “Driving The 5Keys.” They are now available on DVD and will be added to the company’s e-learning library.
“Most people are not aware that driving while fatigued has the same cognitive effect as driving drunk, or that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are meant to enhance and not replace safe and attentive driving,” the company said in a statement about the new video releases. “We thought it was the right time to refresh our proven Driving The 5Keys video and use those skills to address these new concerns and help today’s drivers drive more safely.”
The “Driving Technology” DVD explores the features, functions and advantages of nine current and two future ADAS technologies. The “Driving The 5Keys” DVD updates Smith System’s core driver safety video, using real driver footage to illustrate the skills needed to help prevent collisions.
Founded 65 years ago, Smith System is a fleet safety training organization offering on-road, hands-on safety education techniques for experienced drivers. The company delivers content in 100 countries and in 22 languages. U.S. headquarters are in Arlington, Texas.
