UD Trucks strives to prevent accidents from occurring and to ensure that
cargo is delivered safely. Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is installed as
standard on all models, which helps shorten the braking distance, improve
the braking feel, and extend tire life. The ABS itself is computerized to
help control the braking force and prevent the wheels locking up, even
under heavy braking on slippery roads in the rain, mud or snow. This
means the driver can control the truck to avoid accidents, even if they
have to brake suddenly in an emergency. Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) is
available as an optional extra for truck tractors and full trailers.
ASR features a computer for optimum control of driving force to suit
the road conditions to prevent the drive wheels from slipping.
Naturally this gives the truck greater maneuverability.
Minimizing damage and injury in the event of an accident is the top priority
of everyone within the transportation industry. The Quon takes this responsibility
one step further with a host of safety features such as an extremely rigid cabin
for improved collision safety. The Quon has achieved the ultimate balance in
strength and protection of the occupants, and has increased the stiffness
of the entire cabin. Seat belts with pretensioners, side door beams,
an impact-absorbing steering wheel and steering column, and even a
knee protector, are all included as standard. The Quon is designed
for the utmost safety, keeping drivers and the entire fleet safe from risks.
