Smith System, a professional driver training company, announced the availability of The Keys to Foul Weather Driving, its newest training video that teaches drivers how to adjust to changing weather and road conditions. The video demonstrates how to handle dangerous driving situations using the Smith System’s “Five Keys to Space Cushion Driving,” a time-tested driver training method, according to the company. "A driver that relies on fair weather skills when driving in foul weather is more likely to have a vehicle incident than a driver who is trained to adapt," said Tony Douglas, president of Smith System. "Safely driving in foul weather is a challenge that can be met with experience and driver education." The company says the video addresses the unique challenges of driving in inclement weather, including:
Driving in low visibility; Following and stopping distance; Being seen and communicating with other drivers; Braking and maintaining traction; Dealing with skidding and hydroplaning For pricing information and a full list of videos, training aids, and courses, call Smith System at 800-777-7648 or visit www.smith-system.com
