Re: Cyclists take note lorries don't see you.

A friend is a police accident investigator. He's the guy that holds the traffic up for hours while he measures everything to find out what happened. Way too many of these lorry vs cyclist are "own goals" as he likes to put it.

Another is an HGV trainer. He turns up at our local primary school and stands an entire class in front of his cab. He then invites the class teacher to sit at the wheel. You can't see the children from up there.

It doesn't matter what the rights and wrongs are. If you cycle up the side of a lorry, the driver can't see you. If you are in front of him, unless you are a long way in front of him, he can't see you.

And if he can't see you......
