Description

SEDA-COG has partnered with PennDOT to provide municipal officials with free training through the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP).  Upcoming courses include the following:
 
Safe Driver
Union Township Building, Winfield
 
This course is intended for drivers of municipal vehicles. Recognizing that the cause of the majority of crashes is driver error, the course encourages the development of safe driving behaviors through an understanding of three phases of the driving task, completing a pre-trip vehicle inspection, and work site vehicle operation. The course is presented with these trainee objectives: Learn that the driving task requires a commitment to being as safe as possible; Recognize the messages being communicated through traffic control devices; Use new techniques to drive as safely as possible. After an introduction to the importance of developing safe driving behaviors, the course focuses on recognizing traffic control devices, including signs, pavement markings, temporary traffic control, and the contribution of these devices to driver expectancy. After a section describing driving skills and awareness, the course leads trainees through a discussion of specific driving situations to reinforce trainee driving skills and awareness. While these first four modules of the course are useful to all drivers, including those using municipal cars, the course`s final instructional module focuses on the specific needs of equipment operators and CDL holders.
 
The intended audience includes any employee who operates municipal and public works vehicles.
