Have your say on transparent door panels for trucks in London

Jan 28, 2016
Put forward your views by completing the online survey.
In September 2015, the Mayor of London, TfL and London Councils launched the Safer Lorry Scheme. Lorries over 3.5 tonnes are now banned across London unless they are fitted with required safety equipment, including mirrors and side guards. The Safer Lorry Scheme covers every road in Greater London, except motorways, and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

When the Safer Lorry Scheme was launched, Mayor Boris Johnson said: "I propose to require further safety modifications to all HGVs in London, including the retrofitting of bigger side windows to further reduce the driver blind spots that contribute to so many tragic accidents."

The consultation is now available to read online and states that "... the feedback received from this first consultation will inform which options we take forward. Once identified, we will undertake further consultation on the preferred option(s).  We would like to know what you think about our proposals." 


Have your say by completing the online survey, the closing date for which is 4 March 2016.
