Cyclist safety continues to be a priority for all vehicles that drive within city centres across the UK.
Statistically the most dangerous action a cyclist can make is to undertake a vehicle on its left hand side, as the driver can easily miss dangers hidden in blind spots; cyclists caught when a vehicle turns left can be injured or even killed.
TurnSign, part of the TurnSafe cyclist safety range of products is an illuminated warning sign designed to attract the attention of cyclists that approach a vehicle.
Built with CLOCS, Crossrail, FORS and TFL in mind, TurnSign specifically improves vehicle visibility for approaching cyclists, warning them away from the dangerous left-side of the vehicle.
The sign has been developed as a modular device - it will work any way you want it to. The sign content, colour and intensity can be adapted to meet your requirements. However, we’ve tailored the standard product to be either constantly illuminated or when the vehicle indicates the sign flashes.
Our tests indicate that using high intensity warning flashes that are visible at eye-level is the most effective way of warning a cyclist - heightening their awareness that the vehicle is about to turn. This can be done at either the rear of the vehicle, or even mounted on the side to prevent accidents when turning.
