Do Your HGV’s Enter London?

The experts in DVS and PSS

Why DVS 2024 is Coming Into Effect?

London’s DVS (driver vision system) is adding the PSS (progressive safety system) at midnight on 27 October 2024 as phase 2 of Vision Zero comes into effect. This will now be the minimum standard for HGV’s using London’s roads. It is the next step in the drive to achieve zero deaths or serious injuries on London’s roads by 2041.

Before 28 October 2024, all HGV’s entering London must be fully PSS compliant and registered as such via the TFL website. If they are not, you will face automatic daily fines.

Simplifying The Jargon

DVS (Driver Vision System)

More Information

Active Side Sensor or Blind Spot Information System (BSIS)

  • Forecast potential collisions by analysing the paths of the vehicle and the vulnerable road user to determine if an impact is forthcoming

  • Distinguish between objects in motion and those stationary.

  • Implement a designated alarm approach to alert about the seriousness of the scenario.

Active side sensors work by indicating and alerting to possible pedestrian or cyclist/stationary object-type activity when turning, allowing the driver to avoid the collision.

More Information

Front Detection System or Moving Off Information System (MOIS)

  • When stationary, the system must alert the driver to VRUs in or nearing the critical front blind spot.

  • While stationary, the system must alert the driver to VRUs in or near the critical front blind spot.

  • The collision warning system should incorporate at least two modes from the following: optical signals, acoustic alerts, or haptic feedback.

Detects and informs the driver of the presence of pedestrians or cyclists in close forward proximity. It must be able to avoid accidents in forward facing blind spots.

Where in London is the DVS Enforceable?

Our detailed DVS map precisely highlights the geographical boundaries within London where the Direct Vision Standard regulations are actively enforced, and where obtaining a permit is an absolute necessity by law. It’s crucial to bear in mind that these regulations are applicable to all vehicles that have a gross weight exceeding 12 tonnes. This not only applies to vehicles that are registered and operate within the UK but also extends to those vehicles making their way into London from international locations. This measure is part of a broader initiative to enhance road safety and visibility standards across London.
