Safety in the Bus & Coach Industry
PSV transport and passenger-carrying vehicles such as buses, coaches and minibuses provide an essential service for today’s commuters and leisure travelers.
The safety of passengers, employees and members of the public is essential, but with vehicles operating in busy and congested urban environments, preventing incidents with cyclists or other vulnerable road users is also vital.
Due to vehicle sizes and positions of drivers, buses and coaches have extensive blind spots. This lack of visibility is a contributory factor to incidents and greatly increases the risk of a collision. Being able to prevent incidents and deter fraudulent insurance claims and vandalism is important to the safety of passengers, staff and other road users and the reliability and efficiency of the service.
