Unfortunately, when cyclists and lorries come into close proximity on the road, the result is too often a serious or even fatal accident. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), there were 271 collisions between trucks and cyclists in 2016 resulting in 16 riders being killed and 56 seriously injured. Although only 1.5% of cyclist casualties occurred in collisions with lorries, RoSPA highlights, this resulted in 16% of cyclist deaths. The problem is especially acute in inner London where, over the past three years, trucks were involved in over 70% of cyclist fatalities, despite only making up 4% of road miles in the capital. Paul Clarke looks at the latest initiatives aimed at reducing this level of serious accidents and, specifically, at the organisations involved.
