Ealing Council is pioneering a new cycle safety sensor by fitting ALL its lorries with the safety device, the Cycle Safety Shield system, in an attempt to reduce cycling fatalities in its district. The sensors alert the lorry drivers to the presence of pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles when they are near to the vehicle.
Government figures, for cycling accidents for 2013 have revealed some valuable information about cycling habits. Since the Olympics in 2012 and the success of our cycling team, the nation has been donning the Lycra and getting back on two wheels. This increase in the number of cyclists on the road has led to an increase in the number of cyclist casualties in recent years.
