It seems London Mayor Boris Johnson is about to do something that will help protect London’s cyclists from unsafe lorries. We hope it makes a real difference.
The Safer Lorry Scheme, announced today, sees Transport for London and the London boroughs come together to implement a ban on all lorries that lack certain safety features including as side guards and mirrors.
According to the Evening Standard, an estimated 30,000 vehicles will be affected, mostly tipper trucks, cement mixers, and skip and scaffolding lorries.
