Road safety The Département des Hauts-de-Seine invites you to take part in its workshop to raise awareness of the risks associated with heavy goods vehicles, particularly blind spots. A useful workshop for all users of two wheels or cars. The prefecture will position a light vehicle, a motorcycle, studs, a bicycle and a scooter around the HGV. This will enable users to put themselves in the shoes of a HGV driver: height, size, vision from the driver's seat, blind spots. This simulation will help users become aware of the real visibility of a truck or bus driver.
