Trucks overtaking bicycle riders generate pressure and suction forces on bike riders that can cause them to lose balance and increasing the risk of a severe incident.
Even in low-speed crashes with trucks, there is a high risk of bike riders losing balance and falling under the vehicle.
The talk features interviews with drivers from Bingo and Alex Fraser. Each give their own tips and stories about their experiences, but ultimately they share the same message: the importance building resilience as a professional driver. A fact sheet, poster, facilitator guide, overview and PowerPoint are also included.
The Toolbox Talk is designed to be flexible so your organisation can present or distribute it as you see fit.
