Expert Says All Commercial Vehicles Should Be Equipped with Reversing Protection

Christopher Hanson-Abbot, recently awarded an OBE for his services for vehicle road safety, believes the mandatory fitment of reverse warning systems will reduce fatalities.

Nearly a quarter of all work vehicle-related deaths occur during reversing according to current statistics, and although a large majority of vehicles are fitted with reverse warning equipment, regulations still do not make this mandatory.

Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents.

Tip Trailer Services have been fined £500,000 plus £56,938 costs after an employee suffered horrific injuries when she was crushed between a trailer and a truck, although a reversing system would have not prevented this incident, the resulting fine shows what reversing incidents could cost a company.

aide automotives Back-Stop commercial vehicle reversing systems key features are that it alerts the driver when a person or object is detected within its 3M range and then the reversing system makes a controlled brake application relative to vehicle speed. This prevents aggressive braking when only moving at low speeds but still arrests the vehicle within 0.4 of a second.
