DfT guidance for operators to counter vehicle use in attacks09 August 2019

The government has published best practice guidance for commercial vehicle operators on how to reduce the risk of vehicles being used as a weapon in a terrorist attack or other crime.

The guide, from the Department for Transport, includes a foreword by senior traffic commissioner Richard Turfitt, who says: “The use of vehicles as a weapon to injure and kill people has become a real threat, which means people who operate and drive commercial vehicles need to act.

“It is vital that transport businesses adopt a responsible approach to security.”

The advice covers: security culture, including pre-employment checks for staff and drivers; site security, including vehicle access and operating centres; and vehicle security, including checking vehicles and what to do if a vehicle is taken.

It also contains a list of recommended actions for commercial vehicle drivers.
