A simple engineering solution transforms a dangerous road bend
Malcolm James and his team have won plaudits for their ‘Where you look is where you go’ project which was conceived as a resource for road engineering designers. The booklet and accompanying animated presentation explain what information needs to be given to bikers as they go into a bend so that they can judge their position and speed correctly.


it sounded a bit noddy to me, two very obvious changes to a bend... but the principle behind it is sound and rightly award winning!

anyway thought you two wheelers might be interested if you havent seen it before.

Thanks Ed, very interesting. It also makes a pleasant change to see that there are still people out there concentrating on one of the other 'E's. :)
