About Risk Zones

Before Risk Zones were incorporated into our defensive driving training, students had a difficult time visualizing the distance available for a driver to react. Braking distance, for instance, could only be taught verbally and through physical practice. With the introduction of Risk Zones, students can now participate in more visual, experiential training. Risk Zones are as clear as the frames of the mirrors in the simulator, so drivers can more quickly adapt to incorporating these concepts into their practice.

Risk Zones were implemented as part of an update by Virage, and it is made up of three components:

  • Perception
  • Reaction
  • Braking Distance
