I have been contacted by a constituent, who asks: in the interests of the safety of both cyclists and pedestrians can London's municipal bicycles be fitted with bells, like those in Paris?

Bells have always been fitted to Santander Cycles and TfL continues to look for ways to improve safety, such as the recently fitted Blaze lights to all bikes.

Santander Cycles is launching a new British-built bike this year, which will also be fitted with a bell.
