Relay Technical Transport Ltd is very conscious of the need to protect vulnerable road users. As a result, we are undertaking the following actions:
- Signage has recently been added to our vehicles to raise awareness to vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians
- We have a programme in place to fit out our larger vehicles with audible warnings when the vehicles turn left
- We are installing sensors to highlight to the driver when cyclists or pedestrians come down the inside of the vehicle, as they may not be seen in the vehicle’s blind spots
- We are putting all of our drivers nationwide through a safe urban driving course, part of which involves our drivers actually going out on bicycles so that the dangers faced by cyclists when on the road are highlighted to them
Road safety and the need to protect vulnerable road users is a critical priority to Relay Technical Transport Ltd.
