Having been knocked off my bike before, I know how important cyclist safety is.
A particular route on the way into university has seen multiple students knocked off their bikes in the past by cars, and I want to raise drivers awareness to the other road users.
Placing posters along streetlights I hope will make drivers aware to the presence of cyclists, and protect bicyclists that want to use the route.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
I attended the Fixers Road Savvy Forum in London. It brought together Fixers, politicians, road safety experts and representatives from the emergency services. Transport Minister Stephen Hammond and former footballer and TV presenter Gary Lineker were among those there. The day was split into two sessions. In the morning I took part in a workshop, discussing the key road safety issues facing young people today. In the afternoon, a forum was held where politicians and road safety professionals were given the chance to put questions to a panel of Fixers. Conclusions from the event are going to be presented to the Department for Transport in a ‘Fixers Green Paper’ as a contribution to the Government’s forthcoming Road Safety Green Paper.
