Berlin – July 2017 saw the annual "Trucks and the blind spot" campaign take place in Berlin-Gatow. The issue of pedestrian #safety is often overlooked and younger pedestrians in particular tend not to appreciate the dangers of certain situations. To draw attention to the risks, Joachim Weiß, a retired air force officer with a degree in education, worked with primary schools in Berlin-Kladow/Berlin-Gatow to create the campaign "Trucks and the blind spot" in 2005. Before the start of the summer holidays, the campaign, supported by the #berlin police and Mercedes-Benz CharterWay, showed 116 children how to stay safe around traffic.
CharterWay is supporting the "Trucks and the blind spot" campaign again this year with two Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks. With the aid of the trucks, the schoolchildren were able to experience various traffic situations from a different perspective, learning in the process how to size up the dangers – the basic rule being "If I can't see the driver, the driver can't see me either".
