Video shows motorists how to overtake cyclists
A video clip showing motorists how to safely overtake cyclists is being promoted to coincide with the national ‘Team Green Britain Bike Week’ (18 – 26 June).
The clip is being used by Mayo County Council in Ireland to educate the public about bicycle safety and encourages drivers and cyclists to share the road.
Noel Gibbons, Mayo’s road safety officer, says: “Drivers need to know that cyclists have a right to the road and cyclists need to know that drivers are looking out for their safety. That's why we all need to work together to take simple steps to share the road and keep our roads safe."
Thérèse Ruane, chairperson of Smart Travel Castlebar, says: “Cycling is becoming more and more popular, but it's really important that motorists and cyclists act responsibly on the road to ensure safety for everyone. This video clip will go a long way to ensure that we can all share the road in a safe and responsible way.”
