Question

Living Streets have highlighted research from University College London showing that three out of four older people find the minimum time given to cross the road at light-controlled pedestrian crossings is insufficient. Do you accept the arguments put forward by Living Streets for a new and longer minimum standard for pedestrian crossing times to allow people just a few seconds longer to cross the road in safety and if so will you set an increased minimum standard for pedestrian crossings in London?
