Freight operators, councils and transport officials have met in London to discuss how to operate safer and more efficient deliveries.
From 1 September 2015, HGV drivers and operators must have essential safety equipment installed to keep vulnerable road users safe if they are to drive in the Capital, or they will face fines. Enforcement of the Safer Lorry Scheme will be carried out by Metropolitan and City of London police officers and examiners from the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
In the next three months, 600 signs will be installed in the Capital to promote the scheme. Transport for London has set up a webpage with more information.
