Cyclists' Fury At Think! Ad Which Blames Them For Crashes

THINK! Cycle Safety: Don’t get caught between…


Cyclists have hit out at a government safety advert which appears to blame them for being hit by lorries.

The 45-second advert is entitled "Things you shouldn't get stuck between", which shows a lorry overtake a cyclist and then hit him as it turns left.

Former professional cyclist Chris Boardman tweeted:
