Make other road users more aware with an audio and visual warning alarm
VT TURNALARM prevents accidents in difficult driving conditions by specifically warning other road users of the vehicle's intentions when they are conducting a turning manoeuvre.
Why VT TURNALARM?
Due to the large blind spots on commercial vehicles, it can be difficult for a driver to have visibility around their vehicle and incidents most commonly occur during turning manoeuvres. With a high percentage of left-turning accidents, improving the visibility of your vehicle when making difficult manoeuvres it can reduce the chance of accidents on busy roads.
The VT TURNALARM prevent accidents in busy driving conditions by specifically warning road users of the vehicle’s intentions when they are conducting a turning manoeuvre.
It is the only system in the UK to alert users to two blind spot areas from one device.

How it works
The VT TURNALARM system is a visual and audible alarm warning system. Inactive during normal driving, the system activates when indicating left.
During a vehicle low-speed manoeuvre, the high-intensity LED’s will flash whilst the system will beep and audibly state “Caution this vehicle is turning left” to gain the attention of vulnerable road users.
By mounting the alarm on the vehicle in the eye line of other road users and providing both audible and visual warnings, you can make vulnerable road users more aware of the intentions of the vehicle even if they are wearing headphones. To minimise any disturbance in built-up urban areas during unsociable hours VT TURNALARM will reduce the volume of the audible warnings.
