DISTRACTED DRIVING: NOT SAFE IN ANY MOTORIZED VEHICLE!

2011 Distracted Driving Statistics - By HealthDay

  • Approximately 86% of drivers said they ate or drank while driving at some point, and 57% said they do it “sometimes” or “often.”
  • Over 1/3 of drivers (37%) have sent or received text messages while driving, and 18% said they do it regularly.
  • Forty-one percent of adult drivers have set or changed a GPS system while driving, and 21% do it “more frequently.”Picture1

How about the sweeper operator that is required to watch his side broom rather than looking ahead whilesweeping? Or entry steps that you have to see through in order to see the road surface?

 

Global Sweepers do not require the operator to lean and watch his side brooms, and the steps don’t interfere with visibility in any way. Global’s primary design focus is on safety— safety of the operator as well as the pedestrian crossing the street. The design of the M3 revolves around the operator driving in the front, greatly improving visibility, and overall surroundings, to the left, right, and forward. The M3 drives like your conventional vehicle, with the operator positioned in the center. In the photo above, what is this operator seeing to right, left—or in front?Picture2

 

Why is Global Safer?

The truth is that there is more to our street sweepers than what meets the eye. All street sweepers clean road surfaces, but we do it with the safety of all in mind.

What do we do differently? Among many things:Picture3

1. Better visibility to the operator!

 

Right: Elgin Pelican operator in Chicago sweeps with his head leaning against the door in order to see his brooms while sweeping.  What does he see ahead of him?
