      This is amazing and I have to admit definitely something I feel all companies should take a look into incorporating into their lorry's.

      A camera is fitted on the front of the lorry which sends a real-time picture to a screen at the back of the truck allowing motorists behind to see what is in front of the lorry and allowing them to overtake safely.

      Brilliant idea so long as price is affordable.

      Hmmm, mixed feelings about this.
      Sure anything that improves road safety must surely be a good thing -but on the other hand this will further reinforce the notion of some drivers where they somehow believe that they have a god-given right to get in front of commercial vehicles by any means possible, safe or otherwise.

      If that's the case SB nothing will change for those idiots.However for the rest of us normal drivers it will be a big help.

      Best tip when overtaking large vehicles - when in doubt, don't.
