UK-based Cyclehoop has found a way to use pieces of recycled plastic to keep cyclists safe on the road. Their clever “Armadillo” lane dividers can be easily installed on roads to divide bike lanes from traffic and gently remind cars to steer clear of cyclists. The affordable solution could significantly help improve road safety and reduce accidents.
Cyclehoop’s Armadillo road dividers are made from soft plastic, so they won’t destroy tires if drivers accidentally run them over. This means it is possible for ambulances and police cars to drive directly over them. The Armadillo is already a big success in several cities in Spain, but there is hope that the simple yet effective lane divider will spread worldwide.
