London Traffic Law Enforcement Confernce - Saturday 1st November 2014 10.30 am - 4.00 pm
How policing can support walking and cycling in London
The conference has been organised by London Cycling Campaign; RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims; the Road Danger Reduction Forum; and CTC - the national cycling charity.
The conference will highlight what the Metropolitan Police Service and Transport for London are doing to improve cyclist and pedestrian safety in the capital, and what changes campaigners would like to see.
Those who should attend this event include non-professional road safety campaigners, Councillors, and transport, health and road safety professionals concerned with safety on the roads.
The event will be chaired jointly by Lord Berkeley, President of the Road Danger Reduction Forum and Vice-President of CTC, and Baroness Jenny Jones MLA.
“Attention is rightly directed at how our streets are engineered for people walking and cycling. But we also need to have road traffic law properly enforced – for the safety of all road users – if we are to reduce danger to cyclists and pedestrians.” says Lord Berkeley
There will be speakers from RoadPeace, the Road Danger Reduction Forum, LCC, Hackney Living Streets, Transport for London, the Metropolitan Police Service and the London Borough of Southwark.
The conference has been welcomed by the 20’s plenty campaign and the Transport and Health Study Group.
The conference, which is free of charge, will be hosted by LB Southwark at 160 Tooley Street, London SE1 2QH (http://www.southwark.gov.uk/location) on:
