Truck driving safety

Peace of mind on the road

Preventing, protecting

Keeping drivers safe is paramount - whether that’s on muddy forest floor tracks, motorways or haul roads. To help improve driver safety and accident prevention, Scania trucks have safety systems and features to give drivers better feedback, vision and control.

Safety features

Scania trucks are fitted with safety features that can trigger appropriate controls. This includes ESP (electronic stability programme) to monitor key stability parameters, and Scania LDW (lane departure warning) to warn drivers if their vehicle unintentionally crosses lane markings.

Secure cab

Years of thorough research, design and testing have proven Scania vehicles to be exceptionally safe in real-life conditions. Our high, safe cabs come with improved visibility, handling, braking and stability, plus LED lights and innovative safety features.

Driver services

Scania is committed to increased road safety. Our driver safety services range from real-time systems that support drivers with hints and feedback, to instructor-led driver training courses to improve driving style over time.
