Answer for Vision Zero

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I do not believe loss of life or serious injury as a result of a road collision is inevitable or acceptable, which is why Vision Zero is a key commitment of my draft Transport Strategy.

Eliminating death and serious injury from London's streets by 2041 is a challenging but achievable goal that TfL, the boroughs and police will work towards in partnership, with an ambitious programme to reduce road danger.

I will publish further details on how Vision Zero will be delivered following the final publication of my Transport Strategy, outlining the approach towards this goal, with a particular focus on the years up until the proposed short-term target of a 65 per cent reduction in killed or seriously injured casualties by 2022.
