The Mayor of London, Transport for London (TfL) and the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) have today published London’s first ‘Vision Zero’ action plan, which sets out bold and ambitious plans to eliminate deaths and serious injuries from London’s transport network. Each year more than 2,000 people are killed or seriously injured on London’s streets, taking a devastating toll on the people involved, their families and communities across the capital. The Plan includes:
- Bold ‘Vision Zero’ approach will see a new 20mph speed limit introduced on all TfL roads within the Congestion Charging Zone
- New safety standards for Heavy Goods Vehicles and buses being developed to improve vehicle safety
- Mayor of London believes no death or serious injury on London’s roads should be treated as acceptable or inevitable
