Transport for London’s DVS is due to change in October 2024, meaning heavy goods vehicles will need to fit a PSS – which warns drivers of the presence of vulnerable road users in blind spots at the nearside and front of the vehicle – if falling beneath the three-star threshold.

NE Transport Solutions approached AddSecure to provide and fit their latest solution to each of its 34 vehicles.

Zoltan Serfozo, transport manager at NE Transport Solutions, said; “With AddSecure as our new supplier, we’re now able to install a standalone solution, that doesn’t need to be integrated with our existing telematics or vehicle cameras. We feel this minimises risk to our business as it’s efficient, effective and avoids vehicle downtime.”

Serfozo has implemented AddSecure’s RoadView BSD solution into his business ahead of the October 2024 deadline, enabling NE Transport Solutions to avoid any potential disruption that may be experienced with an influx of requests nearer the time.

Paul Lawrence, managing director at AddSecure UK, said: “The pending changes to operating fleets within the Greater London area is something every operator needs to be aware of. NE Transport Solutions have taken the step of ensuring its vehicles are DVS compliant well ahead of the October deadline.

“We are seeing an increase in businesses looking to install equipment ahead of the changes and urge any operators considering making the change to act sooner rather than later to avoid delays with installation.”
