Mirrors are of the utmost importance for coaches and busses. Setting them right is very important too. Correctly adjusted mirrors significantly reduce blind spot accidents. To help our drivers adjust their mirrors, Keolis has set set up several mirror adjusting spots. Recently, we renovated the one at our main location in Neder-Over-Heembeek (Brussels).
These spots allow drivers to properly adjust their mirrors by making use of drawings on the floor. Five drawings show drivers what they are supposed to see in a particular mirror.
We also created a manual so that drivers know which kind of drawing or shape they are supposed to see in each particular mirror. The new mirror adjusting spot makes uses of five colours, that can also be seen on the ground. This makes is even clearer for drivers how the mirrors should be set.
Mirrors are necessary driving aids, but if set correctly, they can also save lives.
