The Mayor


  Where did you obtain the figures (MQT response 374 / 2012) that nine accidents  have led to drivers being prosecuted following 69 pedestrian fatalities from April 2006 to March 2011? You stated that these 'incidents are fully investigated by the bus operators involved and Metropolitan Police'. What investigations took place? Could we see the correspondence between TfL and the bus companies relating to the 69 fatal accidents since 2006?

TfL is advised by bus operators of fatal incidents on the bus network and is kept updated of investigations as part of its health and safety management processes. Where a highways offence is suspected, there may be a concurrent police investigation. Information shared between the bus companies and TfL is for internal purposes to encourage free and full disclosure of information, and enable TfL to carry out its health and safety assurance role.
