UK safety app keeping lorries on the right side of cyclists

"You don't understand how the deaths are happening. A cyclist stops at a red light in the cycle lane. A lorry pulls alongside them. The lights change. The cyclist goes forward, the lorry turns left and the cyclist is crushed between the lorry and the railings."

As a daily cyclist in city centre traffic I can honestly say I have never witnessed this. I have seen the opposite where the truck was stationary at the red light and the cyclist came up the inside and was subsequently hit (and more than one near miss). Don't get me wrong, there are many other scenarios where the truck is at fault, but I've never seen a truck pull up next to a stationary cyclist then manage to hit said cyclist.
