- The responsibilities of the traffic marshal therefore start with ensuring that the area around the vehicle is clear and safe before it begins to manoeuvre. The marshal will then walk in the front of the vehicle, clearing any obstructions from the vehicle's path, while also looking out for anything that could cause an obstacle for its progress or even a distraction for the driver.
- Once the path is clear, the marshal will then stand still in a safe position where the driver of the vehicle can see him and communicate with them, regardless of the means used. If there is a long distance movement involved, then the marshal will repeat the process, ensuring each section of the route is clear and that he can stand in a new position for the driver to watch.
- While doing this, the marshal should also keep watch for other people in the area as well as other vehicles. This wider environmental awareness can help spot a potential accident or issue before it happens and is as important as any other aspect of the job.
