The Importance of Defensive Driving

As part of the Second Road Safety Project, the “Building Capacity in Drivers through the Defensive Driving Training” course ended today in Belize City. Led by Dennis Molina of the Belize Institute of Management, the goal of the course was to improve road user behaviour. Participants learned the discipline of defensive driving and vehicle maintenance with three fundamental principles: recognizing the hazard, understanding the defence, and acting in time. Chief Transport Officer, Tirso Galvez says the course is expected to lead to a twenty percent reduction in road traffic crashes and injuries.

“Defensive driving is basically very important because it is you who are out on the road and you have to be driving for other people out there. You need to look out for other people’s mistake and you need to learn see things before it happens. With that said I want to thank you. I want you all when you go back to your respective offices or place and put into practice what you have learned these few days and share the experience, share the knowledge because knowledge is power.”
