Direct Vision Standard

The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) is the first legislation of its kind. Since October 26 2020, ALL goods vehicles over 12 tonnes require a permit to drive into Greater London, including vehicles from outside of the UK. Starting in October 2024, it will be known as the “Progressive Safe System” (PSS). This transition is part of the broader effort to enhance safety standards.

Progressive Safe System (DVS 2)

The Progressive Safe System demands technology that can predict collisions based on the trajectories of the vehicle and the vulnerable road user (VRU). This prediction is crucial in determining if a collision is imminent. Furthermore, the system includes a specified alarm strategy designed to alert the driver to the severity of the situation.

General Safety Regulation (GSR)

Le règlement général sur la sécurité (RGS) pour les camions est un ensemble de normes de sécurité qui s'appliquent aux poids lourds dans l'Union européenne (UE). Le règlement définit une série d'exigences visant à améliorer la sécurité de tous les véhicules sur la route en rendant obligatoire l'utilisation de technologies de sécurité avancées et en améliorant la conception de la cabine du camion.

Vision Zero

Launched in Sweden in the 1990s, Vision Zero has become a multi-national road traffic safety project. Vision Zero highlights the importance of equitable mobility for all. Vision Zero’s principles focus on the fundamental improvements that need to be made to improve road safety standards, along with the policies that should be put in place, to prevent needless fatalities and injuries caused by road traffic collisions.

UN ECE Regulation No 46 (R46) covers devices for indirect vision and their installation by applying a test procedure to devices to establish whether all mandatory and optional HGV mirror classes allow the driver to view a specific minimum field of vision requirement. Only camera monitor systems with UN ECE Regulation 46 approval can be installed in place of a compulsory mirror.

IP Ratings Explained

An IP rating or Ingress Protection rating is a system formed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to define levels of sealing effectives of electrical enclosures against foreign bodies. To put this simply, an IP rating will indicate how waterproof and dustproof an electrical product is.

Electric Vehicle Regulation

From September 2021:  All new electric and hybrid vehicle models released before 2019 that can operate without an internal combustion running must be fitted with an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System.

Highway Code Hierarchy

The Highway Code are rules that include drivers being told they must not cut across cyclists going straight ahead, turning into a junction, changing direction or changing lane – making the requirement for vehicle cameras, sensors and alerts on lorries and HGVs to eliminate blind spots and prevent incidents even more of a priority.

Cross Traffic Regulation

Accident prevention in agriculture
Every year, there are more than 700 accidents involving agricultural vehicles in Germany. To combat this problem, the DLG (German Agricultural Society), with the support of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, is committed to reducing accidents in German agriculture.


The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and The Construction and Logistics Cyclist Safety Scheme (CLOCS) are nationwide vehicle safety specifications. FORS is generally aimed at the freight sector but does also apply to vans and other vehicles. CLOCS is more targeted at the construction sector but again covers many vehicle types.
