An increase in population across cities and towns in the UK adds to the challenges and hazards of driving. To help improve road safety, SUD
focuses on understanding how vulnerable road users behave and giving
drivers a firsthand experience of being a VRU.
The course consists of two 3.5 hour modules (both delivered on the same day).
In the Classroom:
How and why roads are changing to accommodate active travel, such as walking and cycling
Who vulnerable road users are, and how they interact with traffic
How to share the road safely
Use and limitations of supplementary vehicle safety equipment and how to maintain its effectiveness
On the Road (cycling)
Demonstrate control of a bike
Demonstrate where to ride on the road and the use and limitations of cycle infrastructure
Tackle challenging roads and traffic situations
Demonstrate how and when to pass queuing traffic
Identify and react to hazardous road surfaces
Use the experience of having cycled in moving traffic to improve driving standards and consideration for others.
