2. PLAN YOUR ROUTE

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

If you have been lucky enough to have the lux­ury of time, plan your route. Fail­ing to plan is plan­ning to fail. Also run through the en­tire route on the day be­fore the op­er­a­tion. Scout the road for po­ten­tial haz­ards and take note of how the traf­fic flows. If there's a traf­fic jam, think about how you can min­i­mize the time stuck in traf­fic. What's the cause of the job? Is there a safe al­ter­na­tive route? How are the cars lin­ing up? Pay at­ten­tion to junc­tions and look out for pos­si­ble sources of at­tacks.

And on the ac­tual day, take note of the things you saw and see if there's any­thing along the route un­usual from the day be­fore; a sud­den road­work zone or a po­lice stop zone. Pay at­ten­tion to the con­struc­tion tent; is there some­thing in­side that shouldn't be there? And if there are po­lice, see if they are real po­lice­men.
