On October 17th, 2019, in Gongguan City, Guangdong Province, while two kids were playing games squatting, one of the boys was hit and dragged to the bottom of a reversing truck, and died despite treatment. The driver wailed with guilt, saying that he backed up the truck slowly because he didn’t see the kids from his rearview mirrors, and realized things went wrong until he finally saw them. To some degree, the driver was “innocent” too, but indeed it was him who paid no attention to the dangers of blind zones and caused the tragedy!
The recent years have seen a lot of accidents caused by big trucks, and big trucks are regarded as bad luck by many people. While in these shocking traffic accidents, many are in fact caused by blind zones.
The tragedy caused by the "visual blind spot" of large trucks!
According to Global Status Report on Road Safety released by WHO in 2018, there are 1.35 million people who die in traffic accidents annually, which means that every 24 seconds there will be one person losing his/her life in the road. Many of these accidents could have been avoided, yet the results are numerous broken families!
These tragedies keep us thinking:
Why these traffic accidents can’t catch some people’s attention?
Why people still pay little attention to driving safety?
Why people don’t try to reduce the accidents with the help of emerging technology?
