					C.A.T. Defensive Driving
                              In the Oil patch
                             PRIMARY CAUSE OF INCIDENTs:
•     Traveling at a speed too fast for conditions
•     Following too closely
•     Driving while fatigued or under influence of alcohol or drugs
•     Wrongfully assuming the right-of-way
•     Misjudging clearances on turns, in passing, and so forth
•     Backing without exercising caution
•     Cellular phone
                                               
    Collision Avoidance Training (C.A.T) collision-prevention techniques including:
•     Vehicle Inspection  all vehicle are required to be inspected daily 
•     Cushion of safety  allowing a buffer between you and the drivers around you
•     Scanning  get the big 360 picture know what's around you at all times
•     Vehicle positioning  don’t drive in large vehicle blind spots and check all your 
      mirrors constantly for  other vehicles
•     Safe backing and parking procedures  always get out and look, but at your 
      company you are required to back in drive out of any parking stalls or sites

Driver DEVELOPMENT AND BETTERMENT:
1. Stay healthy: vision is harmed by smoking, drugs, alcohol, lack of vitamins or proper 
meal breaks
2. "See and avoid" concept: constantly look outside for other traffic. Maintain 
situational awareness inside and outside the vehicle
3. Illusions and degraders of visual reliability: auto-kinesis, haze, false horizons, 
featureless terrain, cluttered background, night, rain, sun in the eyes, dirty windshield
4. Visual scanning technique: 360º segments, up and down, stopping eyes and checking 
for motion in the periphery

Common errors: 
Ignoring the "see and avoid" concept
Fixating on tasks inside the vehicle or distracted driving
