Guidance: Protecting Pedestrian Queues From ‘Vehicle As a Weapon’ Attacks

The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) has produced further guidance in relation to protecting pedestrian queues from ‘Vehicle as Weapon’ Attacks.


The risk to pedestrians from ‘Vehicle As a Weapon’ (VAW) attack remains a possibility during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Social distancing measures will require businesses to manage customers flows and numbers going into premises. As such it is likely that customers will form or be asked to form orderly queues to enter premises. 

In order to minimise the risk to queues of people, organisations can take practical and achievable steps to either deter or disrupt a ‘Vehicle As a Weapon’ Attack.
