Motion detail

This Assembly expresses its deep concern that the Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI) pedestrian casualties increased by 15 per between 2011 and 2012 and that over the same period pedal cycle KSI casualties increased by 18 per cent.

 

This Assembly believes such an increase is intolerable and must be reversed.

 

This Assembly therefore calls for the Mayor and Transport for London to take the following actions:

 

That the Mayor by January 2014 should provide a full report to the London Assembly on the actions he plans to take as chair of Transport for London to reverse the rise in KSI for both pedestrians and cyclists.

 

That Transport for London should publish – in full on a quarterly basis – the number of fatal and major accidents involving buses and the worst performing bus companies and routes.

 

This Assembly also calls on the chair of the London Assembly to write to the leader of Westminster Council urging the council to consider the wider adoption of 20 mph speed limits, with a key priority being its implementation on Oxford Street, which is currently London’s most dangerous street.
