HOW SIGNIFICANT ARE SAFETY BELTS?

SCHLINGPFLANZEN. WIE SINNVOLL SIND SICHERHEITSGURTE?

THE INSTALLATION OF SAFETY BELTS IN COMMERCIAL VEHICLES SUCH AS BUSES AND LORRIES CAN GIVE RISE TO CONSIDERABLE DIFFICULTIES. BUSES ARE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED AS FRONT DRIVEN. THUS THE DRIVER AND IN THE CASE OF TOUR BUSES, THE CO-DRIVER, ARE IN AN EXTREMELY EXPOSED POSITION. ONLY BY MEANS OF A SUITABLE RESTRAINT SYSTEM CAN THE DRIVER BE PROTECTED. IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE VOEV BUS 2, A DRIVER'S SEAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH IS DISTINGUISHED BY THE FACT THAT IT IS DISPLACED UNDER THE IMPACT ENERGY ARISING FROM A COLLISION. THE PROBLEM IS MORE DIFFICULT IN THE CASE OF LORRIES.
