On July 18, 2011, in an effort to improve vehicle safety, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a law that requires convex, or “cross view” mirrors, to be placed on the front of trucks driven in large New York cities. This law was written and signed in reaction to several young children who were killed crossing the street directly in front of large trucks.
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.
