We now have a elearning program that teaches people the hazards and interaction for operations, plus the new distracted driver laws it came out at the same time
http://employment.alberta.ca/whs/learning/roadsafety/HazardAssessme...

or for any other elearning items I think the note to truck drivers and regular size wheels was a plus
