Safety of Vulnerable Road Users

The ever increasing number of cyclists on our roads bring with it potential for conflict with other road users, particularly freight vehicles. Accidents involving cyclists and goods vehicles have become a major source of concern in London and, with ambitious targets for increasing cycling levels in this region, it is important to avoid similar problems arising here. The Freight Partnership has been working proactively with operators to address these issues and have organised a series of safe urban driving courses (in association with the GoSmarter programme) which are designed to raise the HGV driver’s awareness of the vulnerable road user in shared road space.
