This video is an adaptation of a scenario from CCJ’s Preventable or Not manuals. It is presented via a partnership between CCJ and Instructional Technologies. Truck driver John Doe cautiously braked to stop when a traffic light turned yellow — instead of taking his chances and running through the signal. A car behind him attempted to pass Doe, failing to realize he was stopping, and crashed into Doe’s trailer. Could Doe have prevented this crash?
