Many municipal workers have never had the benefit of first-hand experience with four-wheel drive vehicles before driving these vehicles on the job. This inexperience can lead to crashes causing injuries, as well as property or equipment damage. Understanding the capabilities and limitations of your vehicle is crucial!
Your drivers are AT RISK for ROLL-OVERS!
