Crews like warning system

Sutton Council, one of the first to adopt the Cyclear warning system from Innovative Safety Systems (ISS), has reported positive feedback from its crews.

The system comprises an illuminated sign and speaker that alerts cyclists and vulnerable road users when a vehicle is turning left. The latest version has an optional sequencing sensor, which alerts the driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is approaching.

Currently, 10 of the council’s 19 refuse and recycling vehicles have Cyclear fitted. The technology supports the council’s pledge to the London Cycling Campaign’s ‘Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling’ initiative.

Barry Perkins, fleet operations manager, said: “The crews welcomed the Cyclear technology because they are reassured that vulnerable road users such as cyclists are more protected.”

Sutton has also installed ISS’s CCTV camera recording technology.
