Cuomo To Turn Truck Mirrors Requirement Into State Law

[B' Spokes: Filed under news you will not see in Maryland as it's always the cyclists fault when trucks turn right across the cyclist path.::( ]
Governor Andrew Cuomo will sign a bill into law this week that requires large trucks to install special mirrors so they can see pedestrians near blind spots.
The bill will require trucks to attach convex "crossover" mirrors that should help the driver see around the truck better. Those mirrors will cost truck owners and operators a few hundred dollars each.

Momentum for the bill grew after a Brooklyn boy died when he was hit by a truck while riding his tricycle in Brooklyn.

Police said the driver never saw the child.
