The demonstration reinforces our efforts to increase awareness and educate fleets, drivers, and industry leaders about the value of available safety systems such as electronic stability control. Experiencing the technology firsthand is the best way to realize its significance," said Fred Andersky, Bendix marketing manager for electronics. "Bendix and Volvo each have a history of commitment to highway safety, and we will continue to work to deliver the critical safety technologies that will help prevent accidents on our highways."
