London Road Safety Unit
Following the publication of the Mayor’s Road Safety Plan, the London Road Safety Unit was formed in November 2003 to coordinate road safety activities in London.
Killed and seriously injured (KSI) in London have fallen from 5650 in 2002 to 3946 in 2006 - a 30% reduction in 4 years.
There is a strong commitment in London to reduce road collisions. The Road Safety Plan commits budgets and resources through to 2010 and the strong cross party political support, keeps the issue in the public and political eye.
The LRSU is also very aware of the value of getting positive coverage for road safety and share the long term aim to get society to understand the problem, and to make speeding as anti-social and unacceptable as drink driving.
