Awareness Training – Get them cycling, make them understand!

We are talking to Cycle Training UK (CTUK) who are running cycle awareness training courses for HGV drivers in the Hackney Borough (case study attached, below) to learn from their experience and bring their courses up to the North East.

They have also worked with the taxi firm Addison Lee in London http://www.bikehub.co.uk/news/bike-to-work/addisonlee/ We believe that getting professional drivers on bicycles is the best way of making them realise how vulnerable cyclists are.

Can Newcastle City Council follow in the footsteps of Hackney and cab firm?
