Industry responds to proposed ban on lorries

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has responded to David Cameron’s interest in the idea of banning lorries in cities during peak hours, arguing that this is not the best way to improve road safety for vulnerable users. 

Christopher Snelling, Head of Urban Logistics at the FTA, has suggested there are a number of alternative measures that could help tackle the issue.

These include stronger enforcement against lorry drivers who do not comply with safety regulations, improved road infrastructure, and a commitment from tipper vehicle operators to meet the Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) standard.
