Many thanks for your answer to Question 2013/2989 about Advanced Stop Lines, and for writing to the Secretary of State for Transport on this matter. Please can you update me on his response to your letter, and what you now plan to do to enforce Advanced Stop Lines (ASLs)?

I continue to ensure that the issue is raised at our regular meetings with the Department and we continue to discuss the most appropriate means by which we can effectively enforce ASLs to improve cycle safety, which is one my top priorities.

Enforcement of ASLs is a key priority for TfL funded police and given the success of the intensive operation run in August / September, ASL enforcement has been made part of their day to day activities. The police will continue to focus on key ASL locations identified through intelligence and analysis.

TfL, working with the police, recently announced that they are deploying 2,500 police officers across London to deal with those road users who put others at risk. This will focus on making sure all road users are obeying the rules of the road and ensure that the interests of all road users, particularly the most vulnerable, are better protected.
