Škoda do everything we can to keep you safe on the road. Not only do our cars feature the most advanced equipment that should both actively prevent accidents and protect occupants in case of an emergency, but we also want to show you how you yourself can contribute to your own safety. Because for us, putting safety first means to care – about yourself, your passengers and others on the road.

How to drive safely

It’s crucial to know the basic and not so basic principles of safe driving - that includes understanding how to make the best use of Škoda safety assistant systems. Using an example of the two most common driving situations – driving in dense city traffic versus long distance driving we’ll show you how to use the safety assistant systems.
