A Safe New Design To Keep Trucks From Killing Cyclists | FastCompany
Trucks are death traps for cyclists. In London, 50% of cyclist deaths are attributable to the hulking vehicles. Because they sit so high up, have such small side windows, and make wide turns, truck drivers often can’t even see the bicyclists they’re about to crush.
One reasonable solution is to design better bike lanes, but that’s not enough to fix the problem entirely. The London Cycling Campaign (LCC) flips the responsibility to truck drivers with its Safer Urban Lorry design—a truck model that’s safer for surrounding cyclists.
