Exchanging Places Events

Lorry, truck, Exchanging Places, Cycle, Bike, Safety

We also set up ‘Exchanging Places’ events to raise awareness of cycle safety.

These events allow people to sit in the driver's seat of a HGV or bus to get a better understanding of what the driver can and can’t see, especially in regards to cyclists on the nearside and directly in front of the vehicle.

Exchanging Places video

A YouTube video has been launched, which features an experienced lorry driver and a regular cyclist who exchange places and discuss their thoughts. It also offers guidance and clearly demonstrates correct cycling, driving and pedestrian behaviour to ensure safer journeys and avoid collisions.

To watch the video, see 'Related Links' in the right hand navigation.
