Cyclist Friendly Driver
The Cyclist Friendly Driver campaign aims to improve the relationship between cyclists and drivers.
What is a cyclist friendly driver?
A cyclist friendly driver is a driver who is patient and actively considerate when it comes to interacting with cyclists on the road.
Do I need to cycle to be a cyclist friendly driver?
No, you don’t need to cycle to be a cyclist friendly driver.
What does displaying a cyclist friendly driver sticker mean?
It means that you have pledged to:
- Give at least 1.5 m space when passing a cyclist
- Never overtake when the road isn't clear, on the brow of a hill, or a bend in the road
- Stay out of advance stop areas at traffic lights
- Leave enough space when stopped at traffic lights to let cyclists filter through to the advanced stop area
- Always check mirrors and blind-spots for cyclist before opening car doors
- Take extra care at junctions, 77% of all accidents involving cyclists occur at junctions
How do I get my sticker?
Stickers can be collected from the reception area at 231 George Street, Glasgow or you can request them via email
