MP Olivia Chow's Town Hall on Cyclist Side Guards for trucks in Canada

Today I received the Toronto Cyclists Union's Ring & Post newsletter, in it a notice about a Town Hall to talk about cyclist safety particularly as it relates to trucks and bikes.


Safe Trucks Town Hall

"Join us for an event with MP Olivia Chow and many other advocates for cycling safety on February 22nd from 7pm to 9pm. Testimonials by friends of loved ones who have died at the wheel of their bikes by collision with a truck will also be a part of the event. Lets implement this simple and effective tool for bike safety now, come out and discover how to make it happen!"


I don't know if anyone noticed... in the image, the "guard" is inside the wheels!!! I'm no expert, but I thought the idea is to prevent the cyclist from ending up under those wheels. ;)
