S.1810 – An Act to protect vulnerable road users by requiring certain vehicles to be equipped with side under-ride guards and blind spot mirrors (One Response)

S.1810 – “An Act to protect vulnerable road users by requiring certain vehicles to be equipped with side under-ride guards and blind spot mirrors” would require convex mirrors and a “lateral protective device” or a side guard to be installed on all trucks in the Commonwealth over a certain size. The mirrors would allow drivers to see more of what’s around them and the side guard is intended to prevent any pedestrians or cyclists hit by a truck from being run over by the rear wheels. Turning trucks have been responsible for many cyclist and pedestrian fatalities in the region during recent years.
