Safer Cycling training

17 January 2013

The Times Cities Safe For Cycling Campaign is calling for lorries entering a city centre to be required by law to fit sensors, audible turning alarms, extra mirrors and safety bars to stop cyclists being thrown under the wheels.

The campaign is also asking for Trixi mirrors to be fitted at junctions therefore allowing lorry drivers to see cyclists on their near-side. It also calls for improved training of cyclists and drivers.  Now in association with the Metropolitan Police and Cemex, Brake is offering a seminar addressing the risks associated with vehicle blind spots and manoeuvring vehicles,  In this seminar, academic and practitioner speakers will look at current developments relating to these critical issues, including technological solutions such as vehicle-side cameras and additional mirrors, as well as measures such as driver training techniques
