Question

The European Parliament has now supported Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) for new vehicles from 2022. Will you therefore bring forward work with Transport for London (TfL) and across the GLA portfolio to adopt mandatory ISA in your own fleet procurement programme, service procurement throughout London and in taxis and private hire by this date? And will you also encourage London boroughs to do the same for the vehicles and services that they procure?

Vehicle technology has a critical part to play in reducing deaths and serious injuries in London. Transport for London (TfL) is already insisting on Intelligent Speed Assistance on all new buses it purchases, just over 800 currently running on the network. However, you have made some helpful suggestions and I will ask TfL to explore how this technology may be adopted more generally.
