Police and Road Haulage Industry Encourage Drivers to Stay Safe

Police Scotland and the road haulage industry are joining forces to help lorry drivers stay safe this winter, especially when crossing the country’s high level and exposed roads and bridges.

Last winter, eleven lorries were blown over during a three week period between January 26 and February 16.

The initiative aims to educate HGV drivers to stay safe by following industry best practice and tying up side curtains when a lorry is carrying no load and by signing up for weather alerts to get advance notice before travelling during potentially hazardous driving conditions.
