How dangerous is riding a bicycle?
Did you know that you are fifteen times more likely to be killed on British Roads if you ride a bicycle than a car?! Frightening to know that the eco-friendliest mode of transport has the highest death rate!
The Department of transport pledged in March this year £21 million to improve on and off-road stretches, of the 16,000-mile National Cycle Network. We believe more still needs to be done to improve cyclist’s safety on everyday roads.
What is the FORS scheme?
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. FORS helps fleet operators to measure and monitor performance and alter their operations in order to demonstrate best practice. It is open to operators of vans, lorries, mini-buses, coaches and other vehicles, and to the organisations that award contracts to those operators.

LED Cycle Warning Light
Amber Valley Developments LLP have specifically designed our very own LED Cycle Warning Lights, which are compliant with the FORS Scheme to protect cyclist. Blindspots can’t always be detected, especially in heavy traffic with cyclist having the advantage of gliding through on the nearside.
Not only do we manufacture and distribute audible and visual alarms; we help to ensure and protect cyclists all day every day. Blind Spot Protection is crucial for all road users, so our signs can be fitted to any vehicle for this reason.
