Was watching a program on TV this morning. Don't know how old it was ,but a decree had come from TFL, that HGV drivers must go on a cycle aware course due to accident rate with cyclists and HGV. The drivers went,reluctantly, but there were a lot of vlid points raised by the drivers. Strangely ( and sadly ) I didn't hear of TFL parking up a HGV ,sitting the cyclist in the driving seat and getting some drivers to cycle into the blind spots. Might have been more of a safety prevention tool . There were stats given on the accident rate vs number of HGV, but none on the position of the cyclist prior to the accident.
