Greater Dublin Area - see text

The Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA) has again this year teamed up with An Garda Siochana to run a number of road safety campaigns in respect of HGVs in the city centre and their interaction with pedestrians and cyclists. Therefore as part of the initiative the IRHA will be providing a HGV which will park up in pre-arranged locations where the Gardaí will invite passers-by to sit into the truck and get a sense of the view available to the driver when travelling in a city environment.

Here is the schedule:

4th of October from 11:00-13:00 h at City Hall, on Dame Street (opposite the Olympia theatre) 1st of November the initiative will move to Airside Retail Park, Swords from 11:00- 13:00 h and thereafter to Ballally, Dundrum from 14:00 – 16:00 h.

Cyclist.ie - The Irish Cycling Advocacy Network - has been working also with Musgrave Retail Partners to bring about HGV-cyclist safety awareness for both drivers and cyclists. The last static exhibition was at Fonthill during National Bike Week.

Don’t forget to check out the HGV safety advisory video produced by the Road Safety Authority (RSA), Dublin City, An Garda and Cyclist.ie: <>http://www.rsa.ie/RSA/Road-Safety/Education/Road-safety-tips/HGV-drivers…
