New Signs Drive Home the Cycle Safety Message

New Signs Highlight Cyclist Safety

Aberdeen City Council has recently invested in a number of Variable Message Signs (VMS) at 8 locations in Aberdeen, these are designed to highlight traffic congestion and roadworks round the city. At times when there are no such problems (yes they do occasionally exist) the signs show a road safety messages randomly selected from a list.

ACF now has regular meetings with Grampian Police and the City Council to discuss cycle safety matters. At our suggestion the council has agreed to add two new messages to the signs’ list.

BE ALERT FOR CYCLISTS
GIVE CYCLISTS ROOM WHEN OVERTAKING
These should now appear randomly in times of no traffic issues, so most motorists at some time or another should see them.

If you have any comments, suggestions or thoughts on how to further develop this idea them please do get in contact:
