American Command: Ground Vehicle Accidents Are The Opponent Of Our Soldiers

35

Road accidents involving army ground vehicles are often associated with poor training of American military drivers. True, the number of accidents is still decreasing.


The American portal Military.com writes about this, citing sources in the US Armed Forces.

The military command notes that the number of fatal accidents in ground vehicles is decreasing in the United States Army, but the greatest danger to the health and life of American soldiers continues to be caused by accidents involving vehicles, including military ones. In this regard, the American command unexpectedly calls the soldiers' enemies the cars they use.

Land vehicle accidents are the enemy of our soldiers in terms of casualties

- said in an interview with the portal the commander of the Army Combat Training Center, Brigadier General Andrew Hilms.

When Hilms began to study the incidents in detail, he thought that most of the deaths occur during the course of comprehensive combat training, at night, during shooting, that is, in extreme conditions. But it turned out that they are more often observed in relatively safe conditions.

When studying the situation, it was also noticed that among the recruits entering the army there are more and more those who do not have a driver's license or driving experience.

Many children grow up in urban areas and use public transportation. Also, there are more and more young people who simply do not like to drive a car.

- said the general.

The US press notes that in the modern American army, driving skills receive very little attention compared to other types of training.

And although the number of accidents during service time is gradually decreasing, there has been an almost 20 percent surge in the number of fatal road accidents involving military personnel in civilian vehicles. This occurs most often on weekends and is associated with drunk driving. Already this year, 87 American soldiers have been killed in civilian vehicles. For comparison, in 2020, the US Armed Forces lost 72 troops in similar situations.

      Why then appoint them as vehicle drivers?

          The Americans have had a problem with personnel for a long time. It got to the point that now everyone is being taken into the army. All 54 types of sexual orientation.

            And it is better to block the movement by 5 km before such and for such movement. Or declare a zone free of any movement with a radius of 5 km.

      I am surprised that mattress toppers do not know how to drive a car (the legend is fresh, but hard to believe) - maybe it is worth checking them for drug control before getting behind the wheel? Asia is not a foreign country, you can afford anything and behave like a superior race, which is allowed any whims ... At home they are afraid of the police, but here they have no control - they are "defenders of crap", which they plant ... ugh ...

And a certificate in DOSAAF was given at the military registration and enlistment office (they taught at 131 ZiL and Kamaz 4310, although categories could open A, B, C, A, B, for a surcharge), after receiving a registration certificate.

      Information for note:
      In the passenger car fleet of the USSR, just before the collapse, there were about 17 million cars. Through simple calculations, we find out that there were 59 cars per thousand inhabitants at that time.

      At the moment, there are more than 40,9 million passenger cars in Russia. On average, there are 284 cars for every thousand inhabitants.

      Therefore, you and I tried to teach on a broken-down lawn "with gas", and now, if dad is not a drunk, they begin to learn to drive from 5 years old on dad's / mom's "typewriter".
      True, not many people know how to drive with a manual gearbox.

    It's strange to read that. They are also bragging about their successes in unmanned vehicle control. So they could introduce elements of unmanned driving, at least in terms of collision avoidance.
