BQ asks Deputy Prime Minister to improve heavy vehicle safety

In light of Carolyn Lister’s tragedy last month, BQ’s CEO Rebecca Randazzo is asking for a national change to cyclist and heavy vehicle safety.

Rebecca expresses her concern for cyclists interacting with heavy vehicles stating that “while road design and upgrades responsibilities fall to State Governments, more can be done at the federal level to facilitate safer interactions between heavy vehicles and cyclists.”

In this letter, Rebecca has asked for the mandating of sensors and cameras on heavy vehicles to be added to the Transport Infrastructure Council Meeting agenda.
