Please watch this graphic Video Safety Alert
It shows a recent incident where a cyclist came off the pavement at a junction controlled by traffic lights, into the path of an HGV.
It appears the cyclist didn’t realise the lights controlling the nearside filter lane was on green, while the traffic in the offside lane was held on a red light. Thankfully, the truck was being driven at an appropriate speed for the conditions and the driver was alert and able to stop quickly.
This incident had the potential to end in tragedy, with the cyclist being very seriously injured or worse.
