He said, “This is a very exciting time for our industry.

TFL estimates that the new PSS will be applied to approximately 165,000 vehicles which is 90% of the existing fleet operating in London.” It is expected that the main benefits of PSS will come from reduced road fatalities and serious injuries, plus increased levels of walking and cycling as a result of people feeling safer on the roads. As the UK’s leading supplier of vehicle CCTV systems, Vision UK is committed to embracing the new London standard which includes the Moving Off Information System (MOIS). Providing increased safety for drivers and pedestrians, MOIS enables drivers to detect pedestrians/cyclists directly in front of vehicles. Danny welcomes the implementation of PSS.

Our extensive experience and expertise mean that we shall continue to introduce new safety products which will Focus on Progressive Safe System (PSS)
