The Boston Herald reporting on the tragic bike fatality in the Back Bay last week, noted the legislation filed by Senator Brownsberger (S.1810) requiring certain vehicles to be equipped with side under-ride guards and blind spot mirrors. “The city last year began requiring its trucks to have side guards to stop people from falling underneath the vehicles. Walsh is backing a bill before the Legislature to require trucks statewide to have the guards. Sen. William Brownsberger is a co-sponsor of the bill.”
