Abstract: This study evaluates and reports on the findings from real world accident data regarding left hand drive (LHD) heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and foreign HGV drivers. According to the Department for Transport (DfT) there was a 150% increase between 1992 and 2003 in the number of LHD HGVs, and before 2005 it was anticipated that there would be an estimated 10,000 LHD HGVs using British roads each day. With the expansion of the European Union and concerns regarding foreign HGV accidents in the UK, a review of the scientific evidence regarding foreign HGV accident involvement is timely.
Description: This report was prepared on behalf of the Department for Transport.
