Why is LTA imposing the additional mirror requirements on Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) with Maximum Laden Weight (MLW) exceeding 12,000 kg and buses with MLW exceeding 8,000 kg, and not other HGVs and buses?

HGVs and buses with lower MLW typically have lower windscreens and window sills, and thus generally do not have the blind spots that are present in larger HGVs and buses. Owners of these HGVs and buses with lower MLW can nevertheless choose to fit additional blind-spot mirrors on their vehicles.
