News Shopper: Bromley cyclists invited to get truck driver's view of the roads at Bromley police safety event Bromley cyclists invited to get truck driver's view of the roads at Bromley police safety event

CYCLISTS will be able to get a better sense of what truck drivers see when driving on Bromley's roads at a safety event on Friday (December 6).

At Exchanging Places, people who are used to travelling around on two wheels can sit in the driver’s seat of a heavy goods vehicle to see the trucker’s viewpoint.

Bike security marking will also be available, along with a safety talk from a sergeant with the Met’s cycle task force.

Bromley Council's cycle road safety team will also be attending.

The event is taking place between 11am and 2pm on Friday at the Holwood Farm Shop, New Road Hill, Keston.

The stupid thing that town and road planners can't see is that the patch of ground in that photo is in the exact same place and shape as the Advance Stop Line (ASL) and Feeder for cyclists at lights.

I think this is a great idea and then truck drivers should do the same and see the view from a Cyclist's level. It'll probably help truck drivers to realise that most cyclists are only just taller than the truck wheels (look at the size of them - http://www.atseuroma
