JAARS 4X4 Training in PNG, Dec 2018

Why do land transportation training?  How hard can driving a 4X4 or motorcycle be?

Good questions! The answer is simple. It saves lives, reduces injuries, reduces cost of replacing or repairing very expensive equipment. But most important it keeps our people who do very important work on the job. Those people are getting the Bible translated into a language people best understand.

Most humans adapt to cultural norms very quickly. Driving a vehicle is no exception. The three things that injure and kill more drivers and occupants in developing nations are not using seat belts, overloading, and driving too fast.  In many countries driving with a seat belt on is inconvenient and unprofitable. Too often overloaded vehicles are the norm.  There is little understanding of the vehicle manufacturers requirements about loading.  These are bad habits, but bad habits involving motor vehicles are dangerous.

Information learned from motor vehicle accidents in the host countries have helped our JAARS Land Transportation program to craft a driving safety and maintenance program to meet the needs of those living and working in our world wide translation locations.

Pray that more people in other locations can get this training.
