1. Avoid cycling in the lorry risk zone
If a lorry manoeuvres and puts you in the risk zone, you must move straightaway. Brake if necessary. In this area lorry drivers have most difficulty seeing cyclists, especially in busy traffic.
2. Remember even wide gaps aren't safe
Large lorries always move out to the right before they swing sharply across to turn left. Always stay out of the lorry risk zone near junctions.
3. Take care at traffic lights
At traffic lights make sure you stay behind lorries or get a long way in front of the cab, in a location where the driver can clearly see you. Use the middle, not the left side, of the painted bike box or advanced stop line.
4. Know that behind the lorry is safest
Behind a lorry is the safest place to be. Where possible overtake on the right side, so the driver can see you.
