Witnessed traffic accident involving female cyclist and construction vehicle.

TOTAL LACK OF AWARENESS
NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN CYCLIST AND DRIVER.
10th August 1999
Totally inspired to finding a solution to stopping this kind of accident happening again.
19th October 1999
Drawings and specs beginning to take shape. Looking to create a communication link for cyclist and motorcyclist so when using same roads they can communicate their positions to all drivers using same road.

Whilst at work driving my taxi met 2 developers from GSK. During general chat they expressed a real interest in my balled project. Cycle Safety App. By the time I finished work in London and returned to Essex the developers had emailed me that they were interested in developing Cycle Safety App. I accepted the offer.
1st October 2015
Agreement drawn up on the development of Cycle Safety App.
October 19th 2015
Cycle Safety App Logo is created and approved
17th October 2016
Version 1.0 cycle safety app with google map is created. IOS and Android. This app gives drivers a 360 degree view around their vehicles up to 2km. No cyclist or motorcyclist will get within 150 metres of any vehicles large or small using cycle safety app without appearing on drivers phone screens. This app also removes all blind stops. This app also verbally informs drivers when cyclist or motorcyclist is with 150 metres. We succeeded in creating Cycle Safety App without using cameras sensors gadgets or extra wires, totally hands free.
