Vision Zero Compliant Side Guards

IT’S GOING TO BE THE LAW IN NYC JANUARY 1, 2023
AS WELL AS MANY OTHER CITIES & MUNICIPALITIES
SIDE GUIDES WILL BE MANDATORY ON MOST LARGE VEHICLES

By January 1, 2023, private trade waste carting companies and other companies that are licensed by or registered with the New York City Business Integrity Commission (BIC) must comply with the requirements of Local Law 56 of 2015 (as amended by Local Law 108 of 2021).

Local Laws 56 and 108 require that all trade waste vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) over 10,000 pounds be equipped with side guards by no later than January 1, 2023. Side guards are proven to improve traffic safety on New York City streets.
