Direct Vision Standard – an update

22 Mar 2024 Posted By Paul Mummery

Improving safety on London’s roads is paramount for the logistics industry and, in recent years, significant investment in driver training, technical improvements to vehicles and community engagement has taken place. The RHA, Logistics UK and the Association of International Courier and Express Services (AICES) remain committed to working with Transport for London (TfL) on the safety agenda.

Following feedback from the sector, we asked TfL at a meeting on 14 March to clarify the wording of the technical specifications accompanying the Progressive Safe System, to ensure incorrect warnings to drivers are eliminated. We also asked TfL to consider extending the grace period to allow time for any changes to bed in.

We welcome TfL’s willingness to listen and we will continue our discussions with them. We will keep members updated as and when we have more information.
