Volvo Vision - mirror retrofit information

Get Safe, Get Legal, Get Volvo Vision

There's been a lot of concern recently about road accidents involving trucks, pedestrians and cyclists. These accidents can arise when a vehicle makes a left hand manoeuvre and are the result of a 'blind spot' on the nearside of larger vehicles. In response to this, new legislation which aims to improve driver visibility comes into force from 1st April 2009.

This change requires all commercial vehicles over 3.5 tonnes registered after 1st January 2000 meet the new standard and while most recently registered trucks already comply with the legislation, many older trucks need to be fitted with either new or extra mirrors to extend the driver's nearside field of view.

Volvo firmly believes in safety, and that's why we've developed Volvo Vision, a new mirror solution to help our customers quickly and easily adopt this important safety improvement.
