Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Although backing up crashes are common, the good news is most backing up crashes are preventable. In this scenario, you'll notice pedestrians and other vehicles traveling through the parking lot, movable objects such as shopping carts, and fixed objects such as light poles. You want to make sure these potential hazards are safely out of the way before slowly backing up. However, you should always continue to scan your surroundings for developing hazards, such as this vehicle approaching from the right that does not stop.
