Last week Ewals Cargo Care participated in a project at a school in Heist (Belgium) where more than 400 children were introduced to the danger of the dead angle with trucks.
Ewals Cargo Care initiated the project in collaboration with the school and had a truck and driver present throughout the day. "This was the first time I gave a demonstration like this to young, highly inquisitive road users," said driver Danny who has been a truck driver for eighteen years.
"The children (from the age of 6 to 14) were allowed to sit in the cab of the truck, to see for themselves how little a truck driver can see in the blind spot.", says initiator Els Devuyst.
The children were very enthusiastic and found it especially nice to be able to sit the driver's seat. And by standing next to the impressive big wheels, they realized the great danger and life threatening situation. Overall a great initiative of the school in Heist together with Ewals Cargo Care.
