Safety on the Road, a 32-minute training video, addresses safe operation of CAVs. This program can help train applicators on safely manuevering to and from the field.

The professionally-produced DVD covers many basic safety issues that operators may encounter such as:
– Basic CAV safety measures
– Field entrances
– Preventing rollovers
– Overhead electric lines
– Bridge and road limits
– Crossing railroad tracks
– Nighttime operations
– Narrow roads and steep shoulders
– Navigating highway traffic
– Safely making left turns
– Sharing the roadway with others
