London Cycling Campaign supports Action on Lorry Danger vigil outside City Hall

The London Cycling Campaign has joined with RoadPeace, Living Streets, CTC and British Cycling in supporting a vigil to remember cyclists and pedestrians killed by lorries on our streets.

Bereaved families, campaigners and the concerned gathered to pay their respects to all pedestrians and cyclists who have been killed by lorries on our streets.

This vigil was in response to the death of cyclist Philippine de Gerin-Ricard in Aldgate last Friday, and a yet-to-be-named pedestrian in Fulham on Monday, who were both struck and killed by lorries.

A second such vigil will take place at 5.30pm outside City Hall on Friday 19 July to remember the latest victim, and all are welcome to attend."

LCC's Charlie Lloyd said, "Pedestrians and cyclists are being killed and maimed with alarming regularity on our urban streets."

While much is being done by the London Mayor and TfL to reduce these deaths, bereaved families and campaigners are calling for the immediate implementation of measures that will protect both cyclists and pedestrians from the deadliest vehicles on our streets, including;

  • low-cost and life-saving HGV safety technology which can eliminate the blind spot should be mandatory for ALL lorries that operate in our city
  • TfL must expedite the study of the experience of cities such as Paris and Dublin, where lorry bans exist (Safer Streets for All, p11).

The vigil also supports LCC's call for dedicated space for cyclists to minimise conflicts between the deadliest and heaviest vehicles on our streets with the most vulnerable.

The vigil is being co-ordinated by RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims, and is supported by British Cycling, CTC, Living Streets and the London Cycling Campaign.
