CEMEX Logistics supported the Institute of Traffic Accident Investigators research at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, Leicestershire – providing an articulated tanker and an Econic low cab tipper truck – featuring our latest vulnerable road user safety equipment for test ride demonstrations. We also gave a talk at the annual conference on the subject of reducing conflict between HGVs and cyclists/pedestrians.
The event was attended by over 500 delegates with Police Officers from various UK divisions, emergency services and accident investigators and experts from both the UK and abroad.
The aim of the Institute is to promote road safety for the benefit of the public by improving the technical and general knowledge, and skills of persons involved in the field of investigating road traffic collisions, and seeks to improve the standards of safety of vehicles and roads of all kinds.
Our vehicles were there to provide experience and understanding of the direct and indirect vision in trucks and the safety devices, CCTV and safety systems we install to reduce the risk of incidents with cyclists and pedestrians.
The queue for the truck experience was constant all day and our drivers, Bob Lockhart, Darrell Collins and Lea Rea, worked non-stop taking delegates around the test track!
