Heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) are overrepresented in fatal collisions. HGVs make up less than four per cent of the miles driven in London, but were involved in 78 per cent of cyclist fatalities and 20 per cent of pedestrian fatalities in 2015.
Research: For the definition of direct vision standards for HGVs, take a look at our Direct Vision Standard for HGVs page. For research on direct and indirect vision from HGVs as well as construction logistics and cycle safety, take a look at the research in our Publications and Reports page.
Our research is summarised in the infographic below, which you can print and distribute to your teams.
