UK safety app keeping lorries on the right side of cyclists

Re: Well meaning...

The vast majority of times I've been cycling, the large vehicle has come up on the cyclist, not the other way around.

As a truck driver I've lost count of the number of times I've been stopped at a set of traffic lights, the tyres being barely 4 inches from the kerb and looked in my nearside mirror to see a cyclist with their bike leaning on a 45 degree angle scooting up the left hand side of my vehicle even as I'm sat there with FOUR indicators on the left hand side of the vehicle flashing because I'm going to turn left.

When they're not going up the left side, they're trying to prise their way through the gap in the middle between me and the lane of traffic to their right.
