Don’t just look – See

Research from 2012-2016 shows a trend of increased cycling casualties on Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire roads over the summer months.

Working together for safer travel, Road Safety North East Scotland and Getabout have united to highlight safety concerns to both cyclists and vehicle drivers.

Over 50% of these local cycling accidents happen at or near roundabouts and junctions – a time when our senses are flooded with information. Research shows that in many of the incident poor driver or rider looking and observation was a primary cause of the accident.

Whilst it’s our eyes that physically ‘look’, it’s the mind which actually ‘sees’ by observing and paying attention to what is going on around us.
