On the 28th of October 2020, Connexas hosted a free virtual event titled ‘TfL’s Direct Vision Standard.’ The webinar aimed to inform and help attendees understand:
- What the Transport for London Direct Vision Standard is
- Why the standard is being implemented
- The star rating system
- How to apply for a permit
- The standard requirements for fleets
- What equipment and technology improves direct vision
Due to covid-19, the start date for enforcing the standard has been postponed from October 2020, to March 2021. This will impact fleets operating in the Greater London area, who without a permit to show compliance will be subject to a fine of up to £550.
Senior Business Development Manager at Connexas Dan Arnold hosted the event, with talks from key speakers. Including Christina Calderato, the Head of Transport Strategy and Planning at Transport for London. Also, National Fleet and Compliance Manager Baz Barrett, and Network Improvement Manager, Stuart Sims from Whistl.
We hope the webinar gave customers the opportunity to hear the strategy behind the direct vision standard from Transport for London’s point of view. Also, the motivations for Whistl getting ahead of the curve and updating their fleets direct vision with a comprehensive multi-camera system from Connexas.
The webinar was recorded and is now available to watch for free. Please click here if you would like to watch the webinar.
