The other day I was doing a session about the issues surrounding sharing the road with HGV’s.
We talked to cyclist and had vehicles to discuss and walk around, there was experienced drivers to talk and give them a view from the cab.
Most people was shocked that there was blind spots, and the ones who knew that there was blind spots, were surprised that there was so many and the size of them.
So if you do see a HGV or a bus in front of you at the red light, stay behind, let it do what it have to do. Always make sure that you can see the driver, either in the mirrors or directly, cause if you can’t, the driver can’t see you.
