Boris Johnson’s Near Miss – HGV Safety!

On Friday morning I crossed the road at traffic lights in front of Boris on his bike. He must have been late for something because he was cursing the traffic lights – although I suppose I should be grateful he bothered to stop!

Anyway, within two hour poor Boris was nearly flattened by a lorry. Boris used this to say some things about cycling safety – but the real message is about lorry safety. It was an appalling lapse for the lorry driver not to have properly secured his doors. In any case, he was clearly driving quite fast behind the cyclists. 

Perhaps Boris should make the wider public aware of TfL’s FORS scheme which aims to introduce higher standards for London’s road hauliers.
