Refrigerated truck with Blind Spot Assistance- less stress for the driver, more safety on the road

Gastronomy and retail branch delivery in the inner city and greater metropolitain area- not an easy job for the driver of a refrigerated vehicle.

Many points of delivery. a tight delivery schedule because the next customer is already waiting. Often there is very little room to park and unload. Let's not forget a tight window of opportunity to drive and deliver in pedestrian zones.

Not to mention having to concentrate closely on street traffic: pedestrians, children, cyclists, electric mopeds, oncoming traffic, traffic from the side, parked cars, traffic lights, various traffic signs, turn left, turn right- that is a lot of stress for one driver!

Blind-spot Assistance can be a lifesaver- figuratively and literally. Offers more safety for others on the road as well as for the driver, vehicle and cargo. Puts an end to accidents due to blind spots.
