Kingston signs the Safer Lorries Pledge
I'm pleased to report that Kingston Council has this week (12th Sept-13) signed the LCC Safer Lorries Pledge. Veolia operate the refuse and recycling collections in the borough and we trust that their drivers will now get a good level of training on cycle awareness as well as the trucks being upgraded where necessary to have the best safety equipment for alerting drivers to cyclists - i.e. sensors, mirrors, cameras etc. Other companies operating vehicles on behalf of teh council will be covered too. Thank you Royal Borough of Kingston and everyone who contacted the council on this topic. Persistence has paid off it seems.
