blind spot mirrors foreign lorries and coaches
Responsible department: Department for Transport
All foreign lorries and coaches entering the uk to have blind spot mirrors fitted as a legal requirement before being allowed to drive on uk roads.
These mirrors are given out free of charge to foreign drivers entering the country, once fixed into place (which takes a few minutes) the driver is able to see vehicles,bikes etc alongside their vehicle which would otherwise not be visible to them. Very rarely are these mirrors put in place by the driver as it is not a legal requirement, therefore, resulting in these large vehicles being a constant hazard for uk road users.
