Improved mirror legislation welcomed by FTA

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has responded positively to the introduction of new and improved mirrors for HGV’s, expected to be rolled out widely next year. 

Following a ruling handed down by the European Commission, all new HGVs sold in the EU will need to meet a higher safety standard. This will mean being fitted with mirrors with a wider viewing angle. 

Under the new rules, drivers must be able to see a larger ground plane area on the passenger side of the vehicle.
