In order to help reduce road risk in urban environments, Scania is introducing the option of a low-placed window in the passenger door of new generation P- and L-series models. Known as the Scania City Safe Window, this factory-fitted option enhances the driver’s ability to detect vulnerable road users such as children, cyclists and pedestrians in the immediate vicinity of the truck.
“We have been retro-fitting vision panels into the passenger doors of existing P-series models in the UK for some time,” says Andrew Jamieson, Sales Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited. “The success of this programme, and its acceptance by operators, drivers and the authorities, has been instrumental in the Scania factory’s decision to develop the option for new generation P- and L-series models. As a factory fitted product, operators can rest assured that it has been designed and developed to meet the stringent safety standards associated with Scania’s cabs. Furthermore, to ensure optimum vision at all times and in all conditions, the Scania City Safe Window is heated and can be specified for all P- and L-series cab variants.”
