No other car make has invested so many year' research into active and passive safety as Daimler-Benz.
Mercedes-Benz vehicles are among the safest on the road. We are constantly working on new and sometimes revolutionary technology designed to protect Mercedes drivers and passengers from danger.
Ever since Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz invented the world's first automobile, vehicles have become more efficient and faster too. At the same time, traffic volume has grown enormously. Reassuringly, Mercedes safety technology has matched this extraordinary growth.
But while Mercedes leads the world in safety research and performance, we have also been focussing our attention on the most human variable - the driver.
The human factor is our motivation for the introduction of the Mercedes-Benz National Driver Safety Training Programme. Most of our vehicle safety features are working tirelessly in the background - unseen and unnoticed by the driver.
The Driver Safety Training Programme is designed to assist participants to identify risks and cope with critical situations on the road, the essential skills for safe driving.
