The design for the 'cyclist-safe' lorry

The London Cycling Campaign has drawn up this design for lorries on urban roads which they say will be safer than cyclists. The campaign says many cycling deaths are caused by lorry drivers colliding with cyclists who they did not see.

The new design makes it easier for lorry drivers to see cyclists next to their cab, sideguards which prevent bikes being dragged under the wheels and cameras showing the view behind the lorry.
