‘Blind spot mirrors’ on HGVs compulsory from March 31st

Blind spot mirrors will soon have to be fitted to all heavy goods vehicles by law. From March 31st, new legislation will require that HGV complying to directive 2007/38/E (HGVs over 3.5 tonnes) be fitted with the mirrors said to boost the chance that cyclists are visible to drivers.
