The best accident is, of course, the one that didn't happen.
That's why we put great effort into making sure that each truck puts its driver in the best possible position to avoid accidents and steer clear of potentially dangerous situations.
The key to this is thinking about the drivers' health, not just in an emergency, but each minute they're in the truck. Research has shown that human error is a contributory factor to about 90% of all traffic accidents. The traffic environment contributes to 30% of the accidents and vehicle defects to about 10%. In reality, an accident is often due to more than one factor.
At Volvo, we are involved in continuous research activities in order to deepen our understanding of each and every one of these factors, thereby being able to continue to build trucks that keep you out of danger.
