      Just found out that the Met are staging an HGV awareness event at
      Spital Square tomorrow:

      "Tuesday 11th November will also see the Met stage a major joint operation
      with City of London Police and TfL to raise awareness. Two lorries will be
      used in a practical demonstration, held during the morning rush hour at
      Spital Square, E1, where cyclists will be invited to sit inside the lorry's
      cab to see the limited vision of a lorry driver.

      If a cyclist is on the nearside of a lorry when it changes direction, lorry
      drivers can be blind to their presence and a collision can occur. Through
      raising awareness with both groups police hope to make the roads safer for
      everyone."
