Answered By: 
The Mayor

There were two 'Exchanging Places' events organised in 2008 and nine events in 2009. Of those, two were organised by the Commercial Vehicle Education Unit. These events are normally organised by the MPS Traffic Operational Command Unit and supported by the Commercial Vehicle Education Unit. Approximately ten further events have been arranged across the MPS through Borough Road Safety Officers. For 2010, the Traffic Operational Command Unit is planning to hold an event each month to support a reduction in those either killed or seriously injured through cycling.
