Why is Safety Important to Us?

Here at Peterson, you can count on our team of safety experts to keep your team and your fleet safe on the road. Our goal is to minimize dangerous situations and related expenses, and to protect the most important assets to your company: your crew. We strive to make sure everyone—your drivers and other passengers on the road—returns home safe to their families every day.


How Do We Keep Drivers Safe?

We offer trucks equipped with a variety of cameras and mirrors to ensure drivers can see all around them. Combine this with blind spot and backup sensors for precision maneuvering, and your drivers will always be aware of what’s around them. Our trucks’ driver fatigue detection systems prevent driver exhaustion related incidents, and diagnostic software keeps track of maintenance needs from the minute the fault codes come in.

We offer trucks equipped with:

  • Backup Camers
  • Side Cameras
  • Rear View Monitor
  • Dash Camera
  • Backup Sensors
  • Blind Spot Sensors
  • Mobile DVR
  • Driver Fatigue System
  • 360° Surround View Camera System
