Bison Transport has been rated one of the safest carriers in North America. So when they discuss safety and training, the do so with some authority. Bison recently conducted a small experiment on driving distractions with three of their drivers. Mike Theissen (20 years of experience and more than 2 million safe miles), Navdeep Sandhu (new driver) and Roberto Monaco (driving instructor) got into a driving simulator to test out some situations all drivers experience. The results are very enlightening for those of us who think we can multitask behind the wheel.
The video is only 10 minutes but is very educational for professional and non-professional drivers. The video shows just how hazardous texting or simply reaching for something can be.
