    Is there a link to that? It could come in useful.

    Is a skinhead or does he have a moustache?

    Is he by any chance related to the Joseph Edet wanted for non-payment of a fine for threatening behaviour?
    Try googling Joseph Edet Clacton.

    The inventor could be on to something if he modified the device to lock the brakes and stop the lorry engine when a cyclist or pedestrian was within range:whistle:.

    That Surrey Police tweet:

    should presumably read

    We welcome tech that helps make our roads safer so long as it is properly tested, researched, isn’t going to distract a driver & isn't depended on by the driver to spot hazards/danger for them.

    How about an app that deploys a tyre shedding gadget as used by 007 in Goldfinger on any passing vehicle who's driver is not fitted with the visual aid called eyes.

    A Domain lookup shows that he put Essex down as his location. And there is a companies house detail for a taxi driver called Joseph Edet from Clacton-on-sea who started a company called Cycle Safety App Company in 2015 which closed down in debt to almost £2000. So....

    He has since started a new company however:

    Now to be fair, the "wanted" post was from 2012 and he is no longer on Essex Police's list.

    So, another crap idea from someone with a track record of failure.
