Our drivers undertook FORS safe urban driving course, designed specifically for HGV drivers to boost awareness of the hazards faced by cyclists on the roads. They swapped the comfort of their cab’s for a bicycle saddle to see how it feels as a cyclist on the busy streets of London. The drivers learned how cyclists cope with the threat of sudden door opening, HGVs turning left without warning and dealing with impatient car drivers.
The course was a great exercise (not just for the hamstrings) in raising awareness to vulnerable road users. Vaughan Plant Haulage are committed to providing our drivers with the necessary training to make sure the roads are safe for all users.
