Backing accidents

Forward thinking beats backwards driving.

Backing accidents can be prevented. Plan and drive your route to avoid backing whenever possible. Use all mirrors — and make sure they’re adjusted properly. Don’t park in a space from which you have to back out. Always back up slowly because you can’t see everything behind your vehicle. If you have to back, get out and look around to be aware of your surroundings.

Backing safely reduces accidents, injuries and damage to vehicles.

And that’s smart safety!
