Forest Grove

A series of 11 vehicles were displayed with 50 descriptive posters detailing safety features and their first application on Mercedes-Benz vehicles.  The posters covered early design improvements, crash testing engineering, and safety innovations that have been applied to nearly all marques of vehicles since their inception.  Mercedes-Benz has contributed to vehicle safety and safer driving that eventually will support autonomous driving vehicles.  The most interesting comment was "this car isn't that old" when they read when the innovation was first put into production at Mercedes-Benz and is still being applied today.  It was food for thought for many viewers.

The posters were made possible by support from three of our local dealers, MB of Portland, MB of Salem, and MB of Wilsonville.  Many thanks for their monetary support and latest vehicles they provided to make this show include the newest innovations.

The poster set and stands (55 total) are available for other Section's use by contacting Portland Section for scheduling for the cost of round trip shipping (3 boxes).
