The safety belt doubles the chances of survival in a serious road accident. Nonetheless, half of all truck drivers choose not to use their safety belts. That is something that Volvo Trucks wants to change.
“If more road users wore their safety belts, more than 7,000 lives would be saved every year in the EU alone. Professional drivers should serve here as an example,” said Volvo Trucks Traffic and Product Safety Director Carl Johan Almqvist.
