Exchanging Places road show at St Paul’s Cathedral courtyard - swap seats with a lorry driver to see the roads through their eyes
As part of the London Road Danger Reduction Partnership, the City of London Police and the City of London Road Safety Team will be staging an Exchanging
Places road show at St. Paul’s Cathedral Courtyard on Monday 20 July from 8am until midday.
The purpose of the event is to engage with vulnerable road users and give them the opportunity to sit in the cab of an LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) to see for
themselves how difficult it is for a driver to see other road users.
Over the last two weeks, police officers have been issuing tickets to cyclists who jump red lights, cycle on the footpath and other cycling offences as
part of Operation Atrium. These cyclists are invited to come along to the road show to have their tickets revoked following their attendance.
Officers from Community Policing and our Safer Transport Operations Team will be carrying out free cycle security marking with BikeRegister and Havebike
will be offering basic cycle maintenance completely free of charge.
In addition, the Road Safety Team will be available to answer any questions and have safer cycling and walking items to give away for everyone that
McGee, O’Donovan, HB Reavis and Erith will be kindly supporting the road show by providing the LGV’s.
