1) Truck drivers and cyclists are aware of the problem of blind spots but cyclists underestimate the range of blind spots

2) Cyclists and truck drivers assume assistance systems have a potential to increase the road safety of cyclists

3) High acceptance of assistance systems amongst truck drivers

4) Poor or limited communication possibilities between cyclists and truck drivers are reported more frequently by cyclists
