Working in transport and traffic

Have you ever lost your nerve in traffic? But have you ever stopped to think about what the working conditions in a truck driver’s cab are like? Or who bears the risk when transporting hazardous goods? And what about the metro driver that takes us home? Find out what it feels like to be in the driver’s seat. Or would you rather take a forklift truck for a spin? You can try it all! Only at DASA.
