Vision Zero Week - help us to eradicate death and serious injury from our roads

The last week of July will mark one year since Transport for London (TfL) launched the Vision Zero Action Plan.

Vision Zero is a part of the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy and aims to eradicate road deaths and serious injuries from our roads by 2041. As supporters of Vision Zero, the City of London Police are committed to ensuring no-one is killed or seriously injured travelling in London.

To increase the public’s awareness of Vision Zero and the work we are doing to achieve its aim, a ‘Vision Zero Week’ campaign will be running from Monday 22 July until Friday 26 July 2019.

It will seek to:

  • Generate greater awareness of the Vision Zero ambition
  • Help Londoners understand the suffering people experience as a result of road trauma
  • Share the work being delivered by boroughs, businesses and not-for-profit organisations, to reduce road danger

The City of London Police’s Roads Policing Unit will be conducting various enforcement and education operations throughout the week including focusing on the illegal use of e-scooters on the road and targeting drug- and drink-drivers.

Inspector Myles Hilbery, from the City of London Police’s Roads Policing Unit, said:

“The aims and objectives of Vision Zero are something the Roads Policing Unit here in the City focus on day in day out.

“For us, proactively targeting offenders who use the roads to cause danger to others and undertaking visible enforcement activities to deter road users from breaking traffic laws and putting themselves and other road users at risk, is very much a part of our business as usual.

“No death or serious injury is acceptable or inevitable. We will continue to work with all of our Vision Zero partners to target those behaving dangerously, carelessly or illegally on the roads and make the aims of Vision Zero a reality.”
