Direct Vision Standard

On 30 September 2016 the Mayor of London launched a ‘Direct Vision Standard' (DVS) for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) in London. The DVS assesses and rates how much a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) driver can see directly from their cab in relation to other road users. It was created to improve the safety of vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
