Question

Further to your responses to questions 2018/1015 and 2018/1016, how can you claim to be following any precepts of Vision Zero if the only reason you provide for not including the only fatality involving a 3rd Party Vehicle during the Westminster Terrorist Attack in 2017's tally of Transport for London (TfL) Bus Collision Fatalities is because this Fatal Collision "was not entered into the Metropolitan Police's STATS19 Database." Setting aside the many questions which have been raised about the reliability of STATS19 data, wouldn't a truly "ambitious" Vision Zero Programme have a more definitive answer as to why a pedestrian killed by a TfL Bus is not considered a collision fatality even if that has been the only instance of such a death during any of London's terror attacks?

Answer

Answer for Vision Zero

Answer for Vision Zero

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I refer you to Mayor's Question 2018/1015 in which it states that the fatality was recorded by the Metropolitan Police Service as part of the terrorist attack. This is in line with other terrorist attacks in London.
