The competition was for a new design which would remind drivers to be extra vigilant in their watch for riders and warn cyclists that extra care is needed when passing along the inside of large vehicles.

The association sees the competition as a significant milestone in its cycling safety campaign and development of the Cycling Code launched in 2011.

The association has long seen the need for a universally recognised sign warning cyclists to stay away from large vehicles.  The challenge was for entrants to come up with a design that would be visible from a distance and would alert to the hazard but would fit in the restricted space available at the rear of the vehicles.
