Event a continuation of ongoing efforts alongside Dubai Police to promote fleet safety
Aimed at emphasising the role of heavy vehicles in ensuring safety on UAE roads, MAN Truck & Bus Middle East, in partnership with RoadSafetyUAE, Michelin tyres and WABCO hosted a Safety workshop in June for Dubai Police officers, showcasing various road safety initiatives and solutions to reduce heavy commercial traffic incidents in the country.
The training highlighted the ongoing efforts by MAN, Michelin and WABCO to increase road safety, both by building safety into its trucks and fostering a culture of safe driving. Participants gained insights into how proper safety measures, best tyre and load practices, technology-driven solutions and driver training support programs can lead to a significant drop in road incidents.
More specifically, MAN demonstrated a number of technological solutions developed by MAN such as Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Anti-Spin Regulator (ASR), Constant Damping Control (CDC), and MAN TeleMatics, an intelligent technology solution that provides drivers and fleet managers with essential data to optimise vehicle usage and plan services well in advance, and comprising a MAN Tachograph which automatically records the vehicle’s speed, distance travelled, and time spent on the road, helping keep tired drivers off the roads.
This is only a continuation of ongoing efforts and cooperation with Dubai Police will be extended through various training sessions, events and campaigns by end of the year in order to make the UAE roads safer. MAN Truck & Bus Middle East is fully focussed on educating organisations on the importance of understanding the importance of vehicle speed, distance travelled, and time spent on the road; helping to keep tired drivers off the roads and reduce the likelihood of accidents.
“We are pleased to partner with Dubai Police to further enhance road safety awareness in the UAE,” said Franz von Redwitz, Managing Director, MAN Truck & Bus Middle East FZE. “The importance of stricter enforcement of laws and continuous education and training is paramount, but it is also critical to equip commercial vehicles with new technologies to ensure complete and absolute safety on the roads in the country.”
