The drivers received simulator training with virtual reality technology, which model scenarios typical of the roads of Colombia and where they identified how to prevent road accidents.

For his part, Wainer Carrascal, said “we thank the Mayor’s Office and the agency for these trainings that help the driver have better skills on the road and can solve some situations that imply some risk when driving on the roads from District. Here we learned about blind spots, safe speeds, reaction to a road accident, traffic signs, among other important topics”. Wainer said.
