|Topic: USING YOUR SPORTS UTILITY VEHICLE SAFELY|
Off road driving can be fun and rewarding but there are several unsafe situations you can get yourself into.
The most common areas of concern regarding off road safety are climbing up and going down hills with your SUV, rollover dangers, injuries from hiking or falling, and getting lost. In this section of our training course, we will cover these and several other subjects that you should review before you take that off road trip.
Most will never take their expensive SUV's off the road into situations that can get them into trouble because they will probably be driving only on approved Forest Service roads or other good dirt roads. But much of what we have to impart in this section apples to those drivers too.
