Damaged car and warning triangle on roadside

London consists of the City of London and the much larger area of Greater London, and consists of towns such as Enfield, Chingford, Kingston upon Thames and Biggin Hill, to name but a few. As it is so large an area road traffic accidents in Greater London are not rare. Greater London can be dangerous for cyclists, as shown by the fatalities in road traffic accidents in Greater London in 2013. In November of that year there were 6 cyclists killed in road traffic accidents in Greater London in a fortnight. That meant that the total number of cyclists killed on Greater London’s roads in 2013 was 14; nine of those accidents involved cyclists and heavy goods vehicles.

Road traffic accidents in Greater London

In December 2013, the BBC took a poll of London’s cyclists and found that in the capital 25 percent of people who had regularly cycled to work before the November accidents no longer did so. Of those surveyed 25% said that they had been involved in a crash, and more than half didn’t believe that London’s roads were safe for cyclists.

The Metropolitan Police subsequently launched Operation Safeway with 2,500 traffic police installed at major junctions across the city to issue fixed penalty notices to people breaking the road traffic laws. They also gave advice to cyclists and other road users whom they believed were vulnerable.
