The Risk Zone: Transporting Scouts Safely
Don’t get caught in the Risk Zone! Focus your attention on driving. This roundtable presentation will educate the participants on ways to prevent distractions and fatigue while driving. There is additional presentation material on SUVs and vans, traveling with trailers, and insurance information.
