The bus is one of the world's safest modes of transport, thanks in no small part to Mercedes-Benz innovations. Practically no other manufacturer has taken responsibility for the safety of its buses like Mercedes-Benz has. Many of the vehicle enhancements which are now standard originated in Mercedes-Benz vehicles, for example, the ABS anti-lock braking system or the Electronic Stability Program ESP®.
Responsibility is a serious matter. That is why Mercedes-Benz pursues the vision of accident-free driving. The Mercedes-Benz integral safety concept contributes substantially to achieving this aim. By systematically implementing the philosophy of safety, this concept covers all stages of vehicle safety: from handling safety through safety in hazardous situations and protection in the event of an accident to minimising the consequences of an accident.
