Ealing councillor blasts truck drivers over cycling accidents

A councillor from Ealing has blasted lorry drivers by saying that they need more training in dealing with cyclists which share the road with them. 

The councillor said that he hopes training would help to make lorry drivers more aware of riders and also make cyclists feel  safer too. 

“The major and horrific accidents occur because of lorry drivers. Nationally, every lorry driver should be signed up to training. All lorry drivers should take training or a new licence to get that training,” he said in a recent statement.

Ealing already offers affordable cycling training for residents who want the opportunity to gain more confidence on two wheels.

The two-hour training sessions include on-road bike training for children and adults and all levels of experience are welcomed. 

“We’ve got a really strong record of safety around the borough,” said a spokesperson from the programme. 

He added that the training helps riders understand the right and wrong way to cycle on potentially dangerous roads. 

Ealing recently won a National Transport Award for the work they have devoted to cycling in the borough.
