Mobility

Technological progress in transportation and social developments create more effective and sustainable mobility concepts. Today, road users select and change their modes of transport by situation and purpose. Safety in all types of transport is a prerequisite for mobility. The system of independent vehicle inspections (such as PTI) contributes to the high level of technical traffic safety. These inspections add to the compliance of legal climate and environment provisions in road, air or rail transport.
