NSW Heavy Vehicle Operators: Free Fresnel Lenses Available

Fresnel lens trial

Transport for NSW trialled the effectiveness of the Fresnel lens in minimising passenger side blind spots on heavy vehicles and heavy vehicle driver attitudes towards using the lens.

The trial found that 61 per cent of the participants reported having the Fresnel lens made driving at least a bit safer, while 15 per cent indicated the Fresnel lens had helped them to avoid a potential crash one or more times during the evaluation.
