If you haven’t heard about Exchanging Places before, the event aims to raise awareness of cycle safety. It allows people to sit in the driver’s seat of an HGV to get a better understanding of what the driver can and can’t see, especially in regards to cyclists on the nearside and directly in front of the vehicle.
