About Street Sense
Street Sense is a state-of-the-art hazard perception training application that helps you identify common hazards that can be easily missed when you're on the road.
Street Sense immerses you in driving scenarios that mimic real driving conditions in B.C. and gives you the chance to scan for—and avoid—hazards in a safe and controlled environment.
You can practice skills like turning left at a busy intersection, sharing the road with cyclists and staying out of large vehicles' blind spots. You'll also learn why hazard perception is important and develop real-world skills to recognize and avoid driving hazards before they happen.
You're invited to try out Street Sense and test your own hazard perception skills. If you've got feedback, we want to hear from you! You can submit yours within the application, in any of the available formats.
