New era for cycling safety
Volvo has launched a revolutionary safety device that scans for cyclists and automatically brakes if a collision is imminent.
The Swedish car firm says the camera and radar-guided technology, which is being introduced into cars from May, could save hundreds of lives.
The system comprises a radar scanner in the grille, a camera fitted in front of the rear-view mirror, and an onboard computer. It allows the car to identify cyclists who swerve into its path and reacts by slamming on the brakes.
A radar scanner in the car's front grille scans the road ahead for hazards and a camera in front of the rear-view mirror photographs the hazard.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).

If a cyclist veers suddenly or wobbles on a collision course into path of the car, its driver gets two simultaneous warnings. A loud alarm sounds in the car and a row of flashing red lights is projected from the top of the dashboard on to the windscreen.
