France and Sweden (the home nations of Renault and Volvo) have been blocking the possibility of safer lorry design so that such lorries may not appear on European roads until 2025.
The revision of this legislation, which allows for the extra cab space needed for the new safer cab designs, is supported by the UK Government, the official opposition, the European Parliament, the Council of Ministers and the organisation representing lorry operators.
The Road Danger Reduction forum (RDRF) believes pressure needs to be applied on the European Parliament.
You can write to the UK Transport Minister, Robert Goodwill MP in support of safer lorries designs.
