Safer Lorry Scheme (SLS)

Transport for London's (TfL) Safer Lorry Scheme (SLS) came into force on 1st September 2015 covering the same area as the Low Emission Zone and is in force 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The scheme is designed to making London's roads safer for all and is enforced by the Metropolitan Police Service, City of London Police and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.

Under the scheme, vehicles over 3.5 tonnes that are currently exempt will be required to:

  • Be fitted with Class V and Class VI mirrors giving the driver a better view of cyclists and pedestrians around their vehicles
  • Be fitted with side guards to protect cyclists from being dragged under the wheels in the event of a collision

Vehicles that meet the FORS Bronze standard are compliant with the Safer Lorry Scheme (SLS).
