Have your say

DRIVERS and cyclists will get a chance to swap places at a free road safety event.

The event is designed to help bike riders and motorists understand each other.

Drivers will be invited to sit on bikes, and cyclists will be invited to sit in the driving seat of a car and a lorry.

Free cycle lights and hi-vis backpack covers and advice from Hampshire Constabulary will be available.

The event is from 10am to 2pm on April 4 in Guildhall Square, Portsmouth.
