Safe on Arrival: With Some of Ken Livingstone's Transport Strategy Targets Being Met Five Years Ahead of Schedule, London Is a Great Benchmark for Cutting Road Casualties

This article looks at the different factors that have contributed to the significant reductions in casualties in London since 2000. It reports that between 2000 and 2005, all killed or seriously injured (KSI) casualties were reduced by over 40 percent, while pedestrian KSIs fell by 34 percent, bicycle KSIs by 12 percent, and motor cycles and scooters fell by 29 percent. These reductions are attributed to the three road safety “Es” of engineering, education and enforcement. The 3 Es were applied to speed management, and this was achieved through speed humps and tables, 20 mph zones, and the installation of safety cameras. Future initiatives directed at reducing KSIs include digital or time-distance peed cameras and intelligent speed adaptation.
