HGV Awareness

Cycle Confident works with the Met Police, HGV companies and Local Authorities promoting and participating in HGV awareness events. These events help spread the safe cycling message.

Cyclists need to be aware of the dangers of riding near HGV lorries. Last year 15 cyclists died on London's roads, nine of those in collisions with a lorry.

Keep an eye out on our blog to see when the next events are happening. Come and sit in the cab of an HGV and see for yourself the problems lorry drivers have with seeing cyclists and, therefore, how important your positioning on the road is when encountering these large vehicles.
