London to require big trucks to have side view windows to avoid collisions with bicycles and pedestr
After eight bicyclists were killed by big commercial trucks in London last year, the city is considering requiring new windows be retrofitted into truck doors to allow drivers to see other road users that may be sitting lower than they are, especially in bicycle lanes.
The law being considered is, not surprisingly, controversial.
Commercial truck operations, no matter where they are, have always resisted safety measures.
