    Road traffic accidents spark bike plea

    A series of fatal road traffic accidents involving bicycle riders has prompted a leading policeman to urge cyclists to take more responsibility for their own safety.

    Chief Superintendent Glyn Jones’s warning came after introducing a new campaign that will see 2,500 officers being asked to reinforce traffic rules in London’s most notorious black spots from Wednesday (November 20).

    This follows six cyclists being tragically killed on the capital’s roads in under a fortnight.

    Mr Jones said that cyclists are at an obvious disadvantage on the roads, adding: “I think the more vulnerable you are, the more careful you need to be.”

    How to make a cycle accident claim

    Bid to reduce road traffic accidents

    Mr Jones said many bike-related road traffic accidents were down to cyclists trying to pass a lorry or heavy vehicle on the left side before it makes a left-hand turn.

    Over half the cyclists who have died on the capital’s roads since January 2010 were killed in this way, he claims.

    Mr Jones added: “I’m not saying they’re doing anything wrong. What I am saying is if you approach a junction and there’s an HGV (heavy goods vehicle), it might be more prudent to hang back than try to overtake the HGV on the inside.”

    He said officers would be enforcing all road rules during the initiative, including failing to stop at red lights, failing to stop at advance lines for cyclists and using mobile phones.

    The campaign will not cost New Scotland Yard a penny because resources will be assigned from areas elsewhere.
