Cyclists commute along The Embankment during an underground strike in LondonLondon has banned lorries that do not have safety features designed to protect cyclists from driving in the city after a series of fatal accidents in which riders were dragged under the wheels of heavy goods vehicles. Under new rules that came into force on Tuesday, lorries weighing over 3.5 tonnes must be fitted with sideguards to stop cyclists from being pulled under the wheels and with additional mirrors to make riders and pedestrians more visible to drivers. Lorries found driving in the streets of London without these features will face a fine of up to 1,000 pounds per breach of the ban and repeat offenders could be referred to licensing authorities.
