To avoid accidents

Our overall goal is to do as much as is possible to prevent accidents happening. Because most accidents are caused by human error, Volvo Buses main task is to give the driver the best possible conditions for handling the vehicle safely in all situations.

This is where Volvo Buses' driver training provides a very sound base. In addition the bus itself is built upon a series of systems that all contribute to a high degree of preventative safety.

Another ambition is to provide safety features and equipment of different kinds in our vehicles, which assist the driver to manoeuvre it safely. It could be systems that warns or inter-acts. One example is the ESP-function of the electronic brake system.
