why is a turn display important?
Cyclists and Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users, whilst also being the most di cult to observe both in day and in night conditions. Pedestrians in the vehicle path or walking into the vehicle path are in danger of being hit causing severe injury both to the pedestrian and potentially also to the vehicle occupants.
Many common accidents occur when a large vehicle is turning left into a side road and a cyclist on the nearside cannot be seen. It has been reported that HGV's are particularly dangerous for cyclists, especially in London where around 20% of cyclist fatalities occur involve an HGV. These often occur when HGV's are turning left at a junction or simply passing too close to the cyclist/pedestrian.
Accidents like these could be avoided by use of the Cycle Shield Turn Display, which will warn vulnerable road users visually and audibly when the vehicle is turning.
