Side guards on trucks can help prevent serious injury and death in collisions with cyclists and pedestrians.
MP Hoang Mai has introduced Bill C-603 calling for mandatory side guards on trucks. He states:
“Researchers in the United Kingdom found that with side guards, cyclist deaths dropped by 61% and serious injuries by 13%. These standards have been implemented throughout the European Union and even in Japan. What are we waiting for?”
Please write the Minister of Transport urging the government to support Bill C-603.
