In response to the London Assembly Transport Committee’s letter to the Mayor of London about the lack of data on e-scooter collisions in London, Rob Whitehead, Director of Strategic Development at Centre for London, said:
“The London Assembly is right to highlight the dangers to vulnerable road users in London. Large, heavy and fast vehicles pose the greatest dangers to the people who are least protected on our streets. London must do more to protect pedestrians, cyclists, e-scooter riders and motorcyclists from the threat of collision with buses, lorries, cars and vans. Enforcing speed limits, better training for drivers and more protected cycle ways would all help. They are right too that we should see the latest data on e-scooters to help shape policy in the future and make the most out of new transport options.”
