The Portland Water Bureau has released a new video on bike and truck safety.
First unveiled to the public at a bike/truck safety event back in September, the video (watch it below) is an engaging look at what Portland’s busiest bikeways look like from the seat of a large truck.
The video is without narration and it uses titles to make several very important points. It opens with a live re-enactment of a right-hook which is followed by the words, “When bikes and trucks collide….everyone is hurt” as the scenes flash from a ghost bike to a truck driver hunched over his steering wheel in sadness. Those scenes are followed by, “Drivers need your help to keep you safe”.

The Water Bureau’s video comes just about a month after TriMet released an episode of TriMet TV on bike safety.
