An e-mail I got from TFL…
I am writing to both cyclists and drivers to remind them to take care on London’s roads.
Cyclists are reminded to:
- Be aware of blind spots all around large vehicles. It’s often safer to hang back
- Make eye contact with drivers to make sure they have seen you
- Not ride through red traffic lights. It’s dangerous and you can be fined £30
- Allow space between you and parked vehicles. Doors may be opened suddenly
No mention of what drivers are reminded to be aware of on the roads. Hopefully a bit of education about cyclists and their needs on the road but that is probably a long shot.
