Of all companies to invest in safety of people on bicycles, Honda is leading the charge.
Tokyo, Oct 15, 2009 – (JCN Newswire) – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced plans to begin Japan-wide sales starting February 2010, of the Honda Bicycle Simulator developed for the purpose of traffic safety education. By safely experiencing the possible risks bicycle riders may face, users will improve their ability to predict risks and increase safety awareness. In addition, rider evaluation session which will follow the riding simulation will help users learn traffic rules and manners in an enjoyable way.
It will probably take several years for this device to make it to the states, but I hope to see one day something like this for every drivers education class.
