    Question for anyone who speaks German:

    What are these people saying?

    Why did they make their bus so tippy that it needs training wheels?

    And how did they convince all those people to ride a bus like that?

    It is concept to prevent roll overs and other safety issues. The wheels on the side probably stay in the compartment that you see and pull out when the bus gets a tipsy.

    this is what the about page translates to

    Question for anyone who speaks German:

    This nothing all that special. It's basic stability testing that every auto manufacturer does. The outriggers are only there to prevent damage to the test bed vehicle.

    This video appears to be an internal M-B video.
    M-B seems to be demonstrating their heavy vehicle safety to some group (reporters, sales people, industry people?) The fact that try loaded all those people on to the test vehicle is surprising. That's a high liability situation most companies would be looking to avoid.

    Here's a tippy truck driving off-road without training wheels. I'd be afraid to ride on the roof:
