11:22am 5th October 2010
New safety sensors are being fitted to refuse trucks in York.
This year there's been seven fatalities in the UK.
Four of the deaths happened when the bin men reversed, knocking someone down.
Now new sensory technology is being tested in York, so drivers know when there's a large object in their path.
The sensors will automatically apply the breaks on the trucks if they're reversing too quickly and if the back of the vehicle gets within 1.2 meters of an object.
