Cycling Campaigns are Demanding Cyclist Blind Spot Protection from HGVs, Construction Lorries and  Delivery Trucks in major city centres across Europe.

Statistics are Revealing

Current statistics show that HGVs are just 5% of city centre traffic but they are responsible for half of all cyclist deaths, with many riders crushed on the inside of trucks as they turn left.

City Centres across Europe now have Cycling Campaign Action Groups who are demanding that their local Councils and Transport Authorities provide more protection for cyclists and pedestrians against Lorries, Trucks and HGVs that travel through urban areas.

The London Cycling Campaign ensured that freight companies cannot get Transport for London contracts without their lorries having cyclist blind spot protection and their drivers trained to look out for cyclists.

Their ex-lorry driver spokesman Charlie Lloyd, said:

Safer Urban Lorries are a challenge to help reduce the terrible number of people on bikes and on foot who are killed by lorries.”

Amber Valley Developments LLP is Europe’s largest manufacturer of a range of warning LED signs and multi-language speaking alarms that are saving lives and protecting against Blindspot, left turn, and reversing collisions.

Fitted to the indicator system, retrofitted or during manufacture.

Cyclists and pedestrians will be alerted by a flashing LED if they start to undertake along the left side of an HGV, and will hear an alarm announcing a safety warming in any language: “This vehicle is turning left” and be able to take evasive action.
