THE 2014 EDITION of the Freight Transport Association's Yearbook of Road Transport Law is now available. The 52nd edition is designed to keep operators aware of all aspects of road transport legislation. It has been written and compiled by the FTA's team of transport legislation experts, and contains comprehensive information on general operations, employment, specialised operations and health and safety. New to this edition are amendments to the
chapters on graduated fixed penalties, most serious infringements and Driver CPC legislation. THE LONDON Lorry Control Scheme is likely to be adapted to incorporate compulsory fitting of side guards, extra mirrors and other safety equipment to II trucks working in the capital.

Councils is expected to launch a public consultation on the changes this month.
