Before you get behind the wheel, consider whether you need to make the trip. If travel is necessary, consider the alternatives to driving. I have considered the alternatives to travel – online meeting, telephone call, e-mail, video conference – but have determined that it is necessary to travel to attend an in-person meeting. Yes No I have considered travel options – air, bus, walk, cycle, public transit – and decided that driving is the optimal way to get to where I need to go. Yes No Driver Preparation Human error is a significant factor in most crashes. Reduce the risk that you could make a costly driving mistake by ensuring you are physically and mentally prepared. I have had a good night’s rest. I am feeling well-rested, have a positive state of mind, and am ready to undertake this journey. Yes No I am fit to drive. I am not under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or prescription medications that may impair my ability to operate the vehicle. Yes No I have had something to eat, and I have a snack and water with me. If my trip is more than two hours, I have allotted time in my schedule to stop stretch my legs, have a snack, and hydrate. Yes No My employer, customers, and clients are aware I will be unavailable to answer calls, texts, or emails while driving. Yes No Vehicle Preparation A “fit for purpose”, properly equipped, well-maintained vehicle will minimize the likelihood that a mechanical failure will delay your journey, or contribute to a motor vehicle incident. I have inspected the vehicle and confirm it is in good working order. There are no defects that must be repaired before I can operate the vehicle. Yes No The vehicle is appropriate for the journey, and equipped for the weather and road conditions I may encounter. Yes No The vehicle is ready for me to drive - the seat, headrest, controls, and mirrors are adjusted for me. Yes No I have a cell phone, an emergency kit, my driver’s license, and appropriate insurance coverage. Yes No Journey Plan Planning ahead reduces your stress level and leaves you free to concentrate on driving. I know where I am going, and the route I will take. I have identified an alternate route in case I encounter unexpected traffic delays, road closures or poor driving conditions. Yes No My employer (or co-worker) knows my route, my destination, and when I will be traveling. I will check in with them to confirm I have safely arrived. Yes No I have checked local traffic conditions (e.g. local radio), and road conditions. Yes No
