Meet Edwardo Walker from the North Dallas Service Center
He talked with me about the 5 Keys to being a better driver, which are as follows:
- Get the Big Picture
- Keep your eyes moving
- Make sure they see you
- Leave yourself an out
- Aim high in steering
Mr. Walker has perfect attendance at North Dallas Service Center and takes great pride in his work. We are happy to have him as part of our drivers with Dallas ISD Student Transportation Services. Please watch the video below and see why Mr. Walker likes to Drive.
