Despite accounting for only a small share of traffic on Europe’s roads, Heavy Goods Vehicles are involved in a disproportionately high number of collisions each year. The problem lies in blind spots to the front and side that make cyclists and pedestrians invisible to the driver. Legislation to increase mirrors on vehicles has not solved the problem.
The See Me Save Me campaign aims to eliminate blind spots. You can take action by
- Supporting the campaign – sign up to See Me Save Me
- Writing to your MP
- Writing to your local authority to demand responsible procurement
- Reporting bad driving
See Me Save Me also supports bereaved families after a crash. It provides a helpline, forum and network to help friends and families.
