SAFER ROADS FOR HEAVY VEHICLES DRIVERS & BICYCLE USERS

Do you know what it is like to sit in the cab of a truck? How much can you see?

Share the Road campaign  aims to make both people on bikes and heavy vehicle drivers aware of issues involving safety for people cycling around heavy vehicles.   

People who cycle and people who drive trucks getting to know one another: It is only when the drivers go for a ride, and when the cyclists jump up into the cab of a truck can they understand each others position.

 

Key Messages to Drivers

Driving behind a cyclist? Leave plenty of space.

Cyclists ride further out from the kerb and parked cars because it’s safer.

When you pass a cyclist, leave a buffer of space between you.

Key Messages to Cyclists

Keep control of your bike and the situation.

Ride to be seen and predictable.

Choose safe routes.
