    Vulnerable road users highlighted in new publication from FTA

    By David Brown on November 18, 2014

    The FTA (Freight Transport Association) has published a brand new document called Shared Vision. This document has been produced to highlight the extensive work being done by various logistics businesses operating large vehicles on the UK’s road network.

    The document focuses on doing everything possible to ensure that the more vulnerable road users around today will be safer on the roads if we all work towards making this the case.

    The road users who experience a higher degree of risk in their daily journeys include pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. Shared Vision aims to help reduce the number of accidents, injuries and deaths occurring among such road users.

    They are doing this through using a number of different methods. For example improving driver training to make sure drivers are aware of these road users and how to be more alert to their presence, and also by going into the community to speak with cyclists and to visit schools.

    It is hoped that by using a wide range of diverse initiatives, fewer accidents will have the potential to take place. These road users will always be vulnerable but a better awareness will help ensure injuries and fatalities can be reduced.

    Why are some road users more vulnerable than others?

    Vulnerable road users are more likely to be involved in accidents than other road users. For example a motorcyclist or regular cyclist may not be as easy to see on the roads, especially where larger vehicles are concerned.

    Pedestrians also pose an obvious danger in many situations, which is why we should all play our part and ensure we can keep everyone much safer on our roads today. This applies to both rural roads and those in more built-up areas. We can prevent injuries and deaths if we all play our part.
