Here at ND Brown we’re dedicated to ensuring the safety of the drivers and other road users our vehicles encounter and we are continually looking for the next step to improve this area. Our latest development is the addition of vehicle safety equipment from Sentinel Systems in the form of side scan cyclist detection systems across many of our HGV hire vehicles. Cyclist can be hard to see from our large HGV hire vehicles, and this can be dangerous for both the driver and the cyclist. This system is designed to detect vehicles in the blind spot of the vehicle, and will audibly warn the driver of the hazard – enabling them to take the safest possible route to avoid an accident. All our new specialist HGV hire vehicles are now being fitted with the system, and we’ve also began a retrograde fit for the rest of our fleet.
The Ultimate in Safety for HGV Hire
In a further move to improve safety we’ve fitted the Sentinel 4-Camera System to our larger vehicles including our 32 tonne tippers and grabs. These are designed to make manoeuvring easier with an all round comprehensive view of the outside. This eliminates blind spots – reducing accidents, but this data is also stored, making it an invaluable tool if an accident should occur.
