Police dealt with 519 cycling offences in a two week operation which was part of the Transport for London’s Vision Zero bid to eliminate death and serious injury on London’s roads by 2041.
The Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, which is part funded by TfL, mobilised officers from across all units to take part in the crackdown.
Results of the two-week enhanced enforcement ‘Operation Vision Zero’ shows that authorities are prepared to crack down and catch those who break the law of the road. Consequences of road traffic collisions are devastating for victims and their families.
The enforcement action is part of a cracking down on illegal and dangerous behaviour that puts lives of Londoners at risk.
Joshua Harris, director of campaigns at road safety charity Brake, said: London’s Vision Zero approach to road safety couldn’t be more timely.
