Safer Buses = Safer Roads in Japan

05.11.2017Fleet Safety

When we get in our cars and buckle our seatbelts, or step onto a bus and hold the hand grip, we don't tend to think about the vast number of safety features protecting us. The development and enforcement of automotive safety features is often taken for granted. It is mind-boggling to think that not so long ago seatbelts or airbags weren’t mandatory and even after their introduction were only optional, or available for front-seat passengers only.

And as we close the first two decades of the 21st century we are witnessing both the quick development and wide adoption of increased safety standards around the globe.
