Kawasaki - Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), one of Asia’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers, will join the “Traffic Safety Program for Mothers & Children” of the Automobile Journalists Association of Japan (AJAJ). Fuso will exhibit its Super Great heavy-duty truck and Aero Queen large sightseeing bus during the October 20-21 event in Odaiba, Tokyo.
AJAJ holds the annual event as a voluntary project to promote traffic safety for mothers and young children. This is the eleventh year for the program.
MFTBC supports the objectives of the event, and will exhibit the latest Super Great heavy-duty tractor in a display that offers activities such as “Experience How Bicycles and Passenger Cars are Seen from a Heavy-Duty Truck” and “Check Blind Corners of a Heavy-Duty Truck.”
The purpose of these activities is to provide participants with opportunities to actually sit in the driver’s seat of a heavy-duty truck, so they can understand how people and objects are seen from a truck. The overall aim is to recognize risks and prevent accidents.
The event will also offer various information and tips related to passenger car safety and ecology, tailored to mothers and children. Fuso will also exhibit its Aero Queen large sightseeing bus doors open for viewing inside.
MFTBC continues to proactively join and cooperate in safety events to promote greater road traffic safety.
