We can supply and fit HGVs with enhanced safety equipment to help protect vulnerable road users. As a supplier and installer, we can enhance any HGV vehicle with cameras, DVR recorders, monitors, and left turn alarm warnings. We cover all HGV vehicles, from rigid to articulated vehicles, ensuring both driver and vulnerable road users are safe. The installations we carry out can be as simple as forward, blind side and rear cameras all feeding into a display within the cab. This can be expanded with a DVR recorder and up to eight cameras. The TFL rules that come into effect from Oct 24 we also offer a solution with tailored kits that conform to the Progressive Safe System required to enter London set out by TFL. Get in touch with us to discuss any requirements you have around the safety and monitoring of Heavy Goods Vehicles.

Direct Vision Standard (DVS)

The DVS measures the amount of view that an HGV driver has through the cab windows. This shows how dangerous the situation is for vulnerable drivers, like cyclists and pedestrians. With that in mind, is your fleet or vehicle complaint?

The Direct Vision Standard 2024 states that In order to comply with the revised Direct Vision Standard, HGVs over 12 tonnes operating in Greater London that do not meet the necessary three-star rating will need to install a Progressive Safe System by October 28, 2024. A fine of up to £550 per vehicle per day will be imposed for noncompliance.

Progressive Safe Systems (PSS)

The PSS system for HGV, introduces up-to-date advancements in technology, to ensure that operators with outdated systems replace their existing equipment with the required ones for the ultimate road safety.

Blind Spot Information Systems (BSIS)

An information system for blind spots is required for all cars. If a car or a piece of furniture is present on the road, the systems should only alert the driver when a vulnerable road user (VRU) is present (unless a collision with such things was imminent). The required detection range is 2 metres up, 2.2 metres down, and 9 metres back. The system needs to be able to transmit warnings and information signals regardless of whether the direction indicators are activated, and it needs to be operational at all vehicle speeds between 0 and 30 km/h.

Moving Off Information System (MOIS)

A front-facing sensor system is also necessary for the PSS. Although the safe permit recommended it, it was not required, which is why relatively few operators installed it. Two alarms are needed for the front system: one for when the driver notices a VRU before taking off, and another for when the car notices a VRU after it has started to move ahead.
