INTRODUCTION
MESSAGE FROM GOVERNMENT OF THE YUKON,DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY SERVICES
The recipe for safe driving is made up of three ingredients:knowledge,skill, andproper attitude.It takes study and practice to obtain knowledge and skill. A person’s attitudetoward driving is more personal. It requires practice in much the same manneras do skill and knowledge, but more than this, a person’s attitude comes fromwithin. You’re encouraged to drive safely and to develop your knowledge andskills to a high degree. Be prepared to extend courtesy and patience to otherroad users. Other drivers may not be as skillful or as smart as you. Always drivedefensively so you won’t have to pay for someone else’s mistake.
