The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Road Crash Statistics has annually reported an alarming figure of road accidents over the past few years. Trucks rank among top three vehicles, together with private cars and motorcycles, as a cause of traffic injuries and deaths. It's time for every motorist to be more attentive and responsible behind the wheel. Reducing traffic accidents won't apparently happen overnight. Road safety awareness and education play an important part to engage drivers in their actual driving manners on the road.

Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) recently conducted the latest installment of its Truck Training series at the BMD Seed Farm in Aurora, Isabela. The event, which was a part of IPC’s commitment to promoting road safety through useful driver education, was attended by representatives of organizations and Isuzu heavy-duty fleet owners in the Isabela and Cagayan areas.
The training consisted of two parts: lectures and discussion part, and the actual operation of the vehicles. Isuzu facilitators equipped the fleet drivers with essential techniques to use the Isuzu’s 7-speed and 16-speed transmissions, drive with fuel efficiency, and proper risk management knowledge. IPC had already held the event in Metro Manila and decided to expand the training series to Isabela to those who couldn't attend the prior event. IPC conducted this activity free of charge.
