Will Cycle Safety Technology work in all conditions like rain, sleet, snow, darkness, fog etc?
Yes Cycle Safety Technology uses GPS signalling to pinpoint your position regardless off weather conditions or time of day.
Will the batteries on my iPhone be used up quicker if I have to keep the Cycle Safety Technology switched on all the time when using my bike or motorbike?
Yes the use of the Cycle Safety Technology will drain your phone batteries quicker whilst using the Cycle Safety Technology. We therefore recommend that you should use a good standard portable phone charger with the Cycle Safety Technology.
As a cyclist or motorcyclist approaching a road vehicle large or small from behind will the driver be able to see me on his phone screen?
Yes. We have built into the Cycle Safety Technology a safe distance of 100 yards.
This means that if you the cyclist or motorcyclist breaks that safe distance of 100 yards your cyclist or motorcyclist icon will automatically change from safe colour yellow to flashing red.
This will make the driver of any road vehicle large or small who is using the Cycle Safety Technology aware that you the cyclist or motorcyclist is approaching their vehicle.
The same would happen if the vehicle was approaching the cyclist or motorcyclist
When I the cyclist or motorcyclist is at traffic lights or road junctions or slow traffic will the driver know I am there?
Yes. This is what we have called the Critical Point of the Cycle Safety Technology.
Your cyclist or motorcyclist icon will automatically change to red and a voice will instruct the driver to please be careful please be careful cyclist or motorcyclist is very close by
The voice instructions will continue till you the cyclist or motorcyclist are at the safe distance of 100 yards.
If the driver of any road vehicle large or small using the Cycle Safety Technology is using voice on silent mode the red cyclist icon will be flashing red on the drivers phone screen.
When the cyclist or motorcyclist is at the safe distance of 100 yards the cyclist icon changes back to yellow
For the Cycle Safety Technology to work properly do all car drivers, cyclists, and Motorcyclists have to use the app?
Yes. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents since August 2014 there has been some 21000 accidents involving cyclist motorcyclist and large vehicles. This has resulted in deaths and serious injuries.
We believe that the Cycle Safety Technology which is designed on awareness will help save lives if all road users download the app.
As a cyclist or motorcyclist once logged into the Cycle Safety Technology do I have to keep monitoring my phone screens for approaching vehicles?
No. Once logged into the Cycle Safety Technology you can simply stay logged in on silent mode and the driver of any road vehicles large or small using the Cycle Safety technology will be able to see you on the phone screens.
