    New cyclist detection device unveiled by Volvo amidst concerns about the escalating number RTA claims advice queries regarding collisions on our roads

    New cyclist detection device unveiled by Volvo amidst concerns about the escalating number RTA claims advice queries regarding collisions on our roads

    Swedish car firm Volvo has unveiled a new device available in some of their cars. The groundbreaking technology that detects the presence of cyclists on the road gives a warning to drivers, and as a last resort will apply the brakes if the driver does not respond. 

    Volvo has launched a new device in some of their cars in the hope that it could reduce the number of collisions with cyclists on our roads. The ‘cycle scan’ has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, and as it also scans motorcyclists and pedestrians it is hoped that it will reduce the number of collisions. The device scans the road for cyclists before providing a warning to drivers, and even applies the brakes if the detector senses that a collision might be imminent and the driver has not responded.

    A representative from leading road traffic accident claims advice and compensation providers Accident Advice Helpline said: “This is amazing new technology that can only help to reduce the number of cyclist and pedestrian casualties. The success of the Olympic cycling team has led to a revival of cycling in this country, but the downside of this has been the increase in the number of accidents involving cyclists.”

    The Daily Mail reported that in 2012, the number of cyclists who lost their lives on British roads was the highest in five years, at 122.
