Peter Goldwasser, Executive Director of Together for Safer Roadshe said he was excited to install the program in Mexico City with Grupo Modelo as an ally.
He commented that “due to the design of the vehicles, drivers of large trucks usually have limited visibility of their surroundings. The driver’s skill cannot overcome what he cannot see».
