You are having a fucking laugh, right?

Sure there are bad cyclists out there, but HGV drivers are driving carefully? What, like here?

There's a reason why large lorries are the biggest killers of cyclists, and it's not just because cycle lanes lead riders into the wrong place or because some riders ride badly you know? Whatever happened to the appropriation of responsibility and the biggest, most dangerous drivers being responsible for the machinery that they weild around the vulnerable road users around them?

This poster is all well and good for the message to get out there telling cyclists to look out for themselves, but there is much much more to the issue surround lorries than that, as I've said here before.

Sorry, rant over.
