Cyclists And Lorry Drivers Can Coexist Peacefully

1011_bike.jpgTaking heart, perhaps, from George W. Bush's oft-quoted declaration, the Metropolitan Police are launching a campaign to encourage lorries and cyclists to share the road safely. Traffic officers will be out during rush hour this week, helping to "educate both groups about the dangers they pose to each other" - a worthy aim, though if we're being fair, one group is considerably more dangerous than the other. Victoria Pendleton, she of the gold medal-winning pedal antics in Beijing, has got her two-wheeled thang in action to support the initiative.
