Between 2013 and 2015, 477 people were killed or seriously injured by an HGV on UK roads.
As central and local government are responsible for 40% of construction procurement in the UK, we need them to take the issue of lorry danger seriously.
CLOCS – Construction Logistics and Community Safety – is a scheme developed to improve the safety standards of construction vehicles on our roads. It ensures vehicles have the safety equipment required to protect vulnerable road users and that vehicles are driven with the right care and attention in areas with lots of vulnerable road users.
Help us to put an end to unnecessary deaths and sign the petition asking the Department for Transport to sign up to CLOCS:

On the 16th October 2012, at 2:54pm, my life came to a shattering end. My old life that is, because on that day my lovely wife Hilary was run over and killed by a Heavy Goods Vehicle whilst cycling home.
We had been together, blissfully, for 45 years. My entire existence and reason for being were built around her, and the relationship which we enjoyed together. Losing Hilary was more devastating than I could ever describe, and the brutal way in which her life was ended drove me to total despair.
In all the photographs of us together, displayed around our home, I have my arm around her, protectively.
