having said that, I'd like to personally see the lorry drivers reaction to it...
I think with all drivers you get three groups.
1. Very good drivers that watch for cyclists and pay attention. I would say this is the majority of lorry drivers I meet on my commute in Glasgow / have ever spoken to in the pub.
2. Those who just don't really understand whats going on but would benefit from education.
3. Those who just don't care.
I would say that your leaflet is aimed at group 2. However I wouldn't think there would be that many - I don't think a HGV license is easy to get. I would think that they have all been taught when they got your license to drive that bit better than normal drivers and shouldn't really be in group 2.
I would say that educating cyclists to never ever ever ever ever ever go down the left hand side of a lorry, bus, bin lorry etc is more useful. If a lorry ever places you on its left hand side slow down and pop out behind it.
Does it matter if they are in the wrong when they hit you? Surely we have a duty to protect ourselves and act in the safest manner we can on the road.
I would suggest this is the message behind the leaflet - "Lorries? Stay the f*ck away from the left hand side!"
For those of you have had friends or colleagues or club mates injured / killed by lorries I don't mean to imply they have done anything wrong - sometimes you just cant save yourself in the face of bad driving. But if their advice saves one novice cyclist then its worth the leafleting and sitting in the lorry cab for that!
Not that I feel strongly on this of course...
