Question to the Department for Transport

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will include, as part of the Think public information campaign on road safety, messages which highlights the risks of harm to cyclists and motorbike riders when people open car doors without looking to see who is coming up behind them.

Answer (Jesse Norman)

We are committed to improving safety for all vulnerable road users. We will continue to deliver safety advice to motorcyclists, cyclists, motorists and pedestrians through the THINK! and THINK BIKER social media channels, and work with partners to develop cycling/motorcycling campaign messages that raise awareness of specific dangers, including those mentioned.

The purpose of THINK! is to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads. Campaign priorities are determined on this basis. They are thoroughly researched and evidenced using casualty data, road safety literature and audience insight.
