GL64 EUA Metropolitan Police Service Mercedes Actros. This large tractor unit is not the normal type of vehicle seen on the streets of London. It has a 13 litre engine and is used for the long-running ‘Exchanging Places’ series of events. This is where cyclists get the opportunity to sit in a truck and see what truck drivers can see.
Mercedes donated this new truck to the Met for one year for the whole of 2015. When it is returned, the light heads will be changed to amber before selling it on. The truck is named Arthur after the name of the son of the kipper who organised it.Share Follow
