    You have been here long enough to know by now posts degenerate into the persecution of other road users its like groundhog day.

    I agree with Grath ,having been in the motor trade I cant recall any legislation that was applied retrospective .BUT there is a first time for everything, and the set of clowns in charge at the moment be a brave man to bet one way or the tuther

    Can only think of one regarding vehicles, well at least as far as MOT is concerned. Windscreen washers.

    About 6 years ago mot regs changed for trucks regarding n/s blind spot mirror. It involved replacing mirror glass to one with greater curvature giving larger view.

    I dont know if it was a legal requirement or a company policy but I remember about 20 years ago all wagons coming in to the quarries had to get reversing cameras fitted. It was a blanket rule no matter what the age of the vehicle. It may have only been quarries I dont know but HSE/Mine & Quarries Inspectors are very keen due to high incidence of death compared to other industries back then

    Well camera helps identification for the Coroner of the victim before they were squished out of recognition.

    Better to have a Banksman.

    I have been out of the quarries for 20 years now so could have changed but I dont think they did away with the banksman while I was there. I agree with you but often used to see curtain sided artics backing into a print place near where I worked without a banksman.
