Following your positive response to my question asking for yourself and TfL to consider extending CIRAS (Confidential Incident Reporting & Analysis System) to buses, if this is given the go ahead will you also give consideration to extending CIRAS to construction HGVs in London?

Answer for Extending CIRAS to construction vehicles

Answered By: 
The Mayor

CIRAS does not currently cover construction heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) in London. However, TfL is in discussion with CIRAS to see if the system could be extended to HGVs and other commercial vehicles.

The TfL-led Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) initiative has developed 'CLOCS Manager', a collision reporting system designed to improve the transparency of road traffic collision data.  CLOCS Manager was developed in partnership with the construction logistics and insurance industries and helps operators consistently record and manage collisions to help prevent future occurrences.

CLOCS Manager is freely available to all commercial fleet operators, not just those that run HGV fleets.  It is available at https://www.clocs-manager.org.uk/
