Vulnerable road users: Tips from IAM RoadSmart
We are all made up of different shapes and sizes, from old to young and within our unique make-up we each have a different set of problems and vulnerabilities. This week's tips give advice on sharing the road with vulnerable road users, from IAM RoadSmart's head of driving and riding standards Richard Gladman.
Richard said: "Drivers need to remember they are inside at least one tonne of highly engineered metal box fitted with all the latest safety features. Cyclists and pedestrians have no airbags, crumple zones or seatbelts to protect them. Always give more vulnerable road users that extra little bit of space and time so you can react. The roads will be a much nicer place if we share nicely."
