CEMEX Cyclist Safety Initiative in full force at PRECAST 2012 in Leicester

Construction National CEMEX Cyclist safety InitiativeCEMEX UK’s Cyclist Safety campaign which raises awareness of the dangers posed to cyclists riding alongside LGVs (Large Goods Vehicles) was displayed prominently outside the entrance of The King Power Stadium in Leicester as part of the PRECAST2012 industry event last Thursday. A collaborative effort was organised by British Precast the Leicester-based trade body for concrete products with participation from the Mineral Products Association, CEMEX UK, Leicester City Football Club and Leicester City Council. The event supports the national campaign “Cities fit for Cycling” . The key aim of the Cyclist Safety campaign is to prevent collisions between cyclists and Large Goods Vehicles (LGVs) by raising awareness from both sides on how to cycle and drive safely. The police were also on hand giving vital advice to all delegates on road safety.

CEMEX UK brought along two large vehicles, fitted with additional features aimed at cyclists and encouraged them to climb aboard and see the “cabs-eye-view”, to educate them about the potential dangerous blind spots for the driver surrounding the lorry. Cyclists from the local area attended during the day and the demonstrations were found to be a real eye-opener with visitors noting that the blind areas around the lorries are far larger than one would imagine.
