What is Chapter 8?
WHAT IS CHAPTER 8 AND ITS LEGAL STATUS?
All Blitz Illumination working platforms conform to the latest Department Of Transport recommendations.
The use of Chapter 8 compliant vehicle livery is considered Department of Transport best practice and recommend that any vehicles stopping on UK roads for works or inspection purposes should be compliant.
It is intended to provide a standard of good practice and is considered as the minimum requirement, which should always be achieved.
Whilst Chapter 8 is not legislation, by not complying with these guidelines you are leaving yourself open to potential legal action should an accident happen involving your fleet.
