Cyclists and lorry drivers switch places in awareness campaign

London Police continue ‘changing places’ series

The City of London Police are to run another ‘exchanging places’ event, inviting cyclists to take a seat in a lorry driver’s cab to get a better idea of their view of the road.

Cyclists of the City are invited to attend the event to be held at St Paul’s Cathedral from 7.30am on Wednesday June 22nd. A free breakfast is also on offer for those who attend.

Organiser, PC Alex Sweet from the City of London Police said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about cycle safety as well as claim a complimentary breakfast at this relaxed and informal event. Our priority is to reduce the number of cyclists killed and injured on the roads.”

Supporting the event, Cemex UK, building materials supplier, is providing the large heavy goods vehicles for the exercise. The company is leading the industry by fitting additional safety features to its lorries to help prevent incidents with cyclists.

Whole Foods and Starbucks are also supporting the event ensuring there will be a variety of breakfast choices on offer during the morning.
