NOVEMBER 2016 CV ENGINEER UPDATE
The UK system for assessing truck and bus driver fitness to drive safely is suffering from "major failings", according to a hard-hitting report published last month by an influential parliamentary ombudsman. This echoes some of the findings of the inquiry into the six deaths resulting from the horrendous Glasgow refuse-collection truck crash of two years ago. Now a separate Commercial Vehicle Engineer investigation has exposed even more failings in the driver medical system. We are calling on the Department for Transport and the British Medical Association to put their heads together and accept openly that urgent improvements are needed.
Are truck and bus diesel engines soon to be consigned to history by concerns over air quality, greenhouse gas emissions and the introduction of alternative fuels such as gas and electricity? Certainly not, according to the straight-talking product development director at Daf Trucks. He lifts the veil, just a little, on the Paccar company's latest driveline development plans.
People in the news this month include Ian Lumsden, leaving Iveco to take charge of Tesco's huge fleet of home-delivery vehicles; and Cummins' global component division boss Tracy Embree, explaining the thinking behind new products such as a mid-range fuel injection system and compact exhaust after-treatment kit.
