We have had enough.

Many of us are affected in our own homes. We are not sleeping on weekend nights due to the noise. That affects our health and relationships. And there is a constant risk of death and serious injury as this criminal behaviour goes unchallenged. We have heard of three people dying on the A10 in 2018 – perhaps there were more.

RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims, has today published a review looking at traffic law enforcement across London. Based on the latest statistics from 2017, the findings have led the charity to call for improved transparency and accountability of the Metropolitan Police, to understand the strategy it is deploying to tackle road danger. London should be leading the way when it comes to traffic law enforcement, and RoadPeace’s review indicates that enforcement is not only inconsistent and infrequent across the capital, but doesn’t compare well nationally either.
