As part of our campaign to pass safely, we have been getting the ‘safe pass’ message out with our vests and back pack covers during the summer months. Users of these hi-viz vests and covers have answered a short survey about their experience.
- All but one of the 43 respondents found the vests/covers to be significantly or slightly positive in terms of influencing driver behaviour (60% significantly positively);
- All users felt safer, of whom: 21% a lot, 60% moderately and 19% a little;
- A very large majority of 90% would recommend the vests/covers to other cyclists.
Road Safety Fund for a successful campaign
TACC successfully applied for a grant from the Road Safety Fund for a campaign to increase awareness of safe passing and improve local cyclists’ confidence on roads. Mike Ginger explains how TACC used the money.
