TfL wins safety award
TfL has been recognised internationally for its work to improve the safety of cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists in London. Prince Michael of Kent awarded the transport authority with the International Road Safety Award for its ‘ground breaking work and promising results’ for reducing death and serious injury. Analysis of police collision and travel demand data led TfL to put in place a range of initiatives which it says has contributed to a 3% drop in the number of people killed and seriously injured on London’s streets (2,092) in 2015, its lowest ever level. TfL is now looking to go further, with measures including the development of a bus safety standard, which includes the latest safety technologies to help avoid and reduce the impact of collisions involving buses.
