New Lorry Legislation to Protect Cyclists

Sep 02, 2015
The Metro has reported that London will be the first city to ban vehicles that do not comply with the a new legislation that has been introduced. 

I previously wrote a blog (click here to read) about how the government was looking to try and reduce the number of cyclists being injured or killed on our roads. 

Under the new legislation, all lorries over 3.5 tonnes must have side guards to protect cyclists and prevent injuries. 

Each breach of the ban can impose a maximum fine of £1,000, with repeat offenders risking the loss of their operating licence. 

For more information on the new legislation please contact Pete Dodd, Partner in our Motoring, Transport and Regulatory Team, by email or calling 01279 755777.
