Reversing aid on council RCVs

Carmarthenshire County Council is to install Innovative Safety Systems’ reversing aid technology Reaclear to its 28-strong fleet of waste and recycling vehicles.

Reaclear works by ensuring that every reverse manoeuvre is ‘authorised’ before it occurs.

The reversing assistant carries a handheld device that also acts as a two-way radio and, once it is safe to manoeuvre, he or she presses the transmit button. This lets the driver know it is safe to reverse.

If the vehicle is reversed without first receiving a signal, an alarm sounds in the cab and LED warning lights start to flash. A message and video clip is also sent to the transport office to determine if further action is required.
