A recent article in BusRide
Magazine explains how a
camera-based vision system can completely eliminate
the blind zones on transit buses, showing tremendous
potential to reduce transit bus side-crashes.
Paul Hughes, Director of Sales for the RV and Specialty Vehicle Markets at Velvac, summarizes the findings of a research study conducted by the Center for Urban Transportation and Research (CUTR), which evaluated the effectiveness of mirror-based, sensor-based and camera-based systems for side-collision avoidance.
They concluded that camera-based vision systems,
similar to the ones offered by Velvac, can not only
eliminate blind spots, but also significantly improve visibility in all inclement weather conditions, allowing
the driver to perceive distances and distinguish objects correctly.

July 18, 2011, in an effort to improve vehicle safety, New York Governor
Cuomo signed a law requiring heavy trucks registered in New York to employ front convex, or "cross view", mirrors when driving through large New York cities.
According to NHTSA, frontal impacts account for almost three quarters of all pedestrians killed by large trucks. This law will go a long way in significantly reducing such fatalities.
Velvac first developed front dual-view crossover mirrors more than 25 years ago and has expanded its offering on heavy trucks many times since. As a result, Velvac has one of the most complete offerings of quality front crossover mirrors in the industry. When properly installed, these mirrors will help vehicle owners comply with this recent New York State law.
