National Bike Safety Week 2015

Bike Safety

At the start of Bike Week running from 13th – 21st June 2015, the RSA and Garda, have launched a new campaign targeting cyclists and truck drivers about ‘Blind Spots’ around trucks which can lead to serious accidents.

Truck size presents a danger to vulnerable road users. Vision, within a cab, is limited and drives sometimes can’t see the area right in front, behind and to the left of the vehicle as it hidden from sight. This leads to increased risks of accidents for cyclists and pedestrians. Take a look at this video from the Irish Road Safety Authority to learn more.

 

The message to cyclists, be aware of ‘Danger Zone’ on trucks and never ride along the kerb side of a truck, especially if it’s turning left.

The message to Truck drivers, be  aware that mirrors on their truck cab will not always give them a total view of  cyclists riding alongside or behind the vehicle.
