SAFE DRIVING OPERATIONS
✔ Always use two personnel to guide driver when backing the
vehicle for emplacement or any other reason. Both guides must
stand to the left a safe distance from vehicle. Left front guide
must be visible to driver.
✔ Do not stand between vehicles while one or more of them are
running. Vehicle could jump and pin you against the other
✔ Hatches could close and injure or kill personnel.
Visually check inside and outside locks of hatches for latching
before operating in open hatch mode.
✔ Always use "three point contact" with vehicle; face vehicle when
entering or leaving crew compartment. Three point contact
means that three out of four arms and legs are in contact with
the vehicle at all times during mounting or dismounting.
✔ Never use control levers as a hand-hold when entering or
exiting the vehicle. Never step on foot controls when mounting
or climbing off vehicle.
✔ Never enter a moving vehicle. Failure to comply may result in
injury or death to personnel.
✔ Do not use on-board equipment for purposes other than its
intended use, unless authorized by the Tank-automotive and
Armaments Command (TACOM).
✔ Fasten seat belt before operating vehicle. Avoid sudden
stops and operate at a safe speed.
✔ Make sure steering wheel is centered and locked. Vehicle may
move during engine starting causing injury to personnel.
