Redesigned Truck Has No Blind Spots [Pics]
New plans for vehicles in the UK feature larger windows, lower seating positions, and a lower bumper.
The London Cycling Campaign has introduced plans for its new Safer Urban Truck in the UK, which its hopes the construction industry will adopt in order to reduce the shocking number of truck-cyclist fatalities. The truck design features a lower seating position, which gives the driver an improved view of what's happening around the vehicle, significantly reducing the risk to pedestrians and cyclists.
Larger side windows and windscreen provide enhanced visibility to the front and the side. These high-visibility glass panels mean the area to the front-left of the truck is clear to see.
