Hills lead the way with Cycle Safe initiative

On the same day that the Tour of Britain passed through Devizes, Hills Quarry Products wheeled out the three latest vehicles in their fleet to support the Mineral Products Association’s (MPA) national Cycle Safe Campaign – which highlights the potential risk of cyclists undertaking lorries and getting too close to them at left-hand turns and roundabouts. Children and other cycle enthusiasts were given the opportunity to sit in the cab of a lorry to understand the driver’s perspective, experience visibility issues and share their own road experiences.

John Warner, transport manager said: “We were able to show how improvements made to our vehicles improve drivers’ awareness of cyclists and help cyclists, both young and old, be more aware of potentially dangerous zones around lorries.” Cycle Safe leaflets which give practical tips on ways to prevent potential dangers were also handed out.
