NEW Animation! What Cyclists Need to Know About Trucks

trucks image

Cyclists hit by turning trucks is a repeating news story which highlights the most serious deficiency in our system — education of cyclists. Sometimes these crashes are caused by the truck driver passing a cyclist prior to turning right, but very often they are caused by the cyclist passing the truck on the right. In both cases, the cyclist has the power to avoid the crash. Click the image to learn how you can keep this from happening to you.

Lane Width & Space

When viewing the bicyclist sharing the lane, select the type of motor vehicle sharing the lane. To see how shy clearance is affected, choose from small, medium or large vehicle in the left lane. Move the slider right to increase lane width. (?) buttons explain various elements of the animation. If you would like to take a screen shot of your composition for use in a presentation, you may choose HIDE BUTTONS for a clean image.
