On the day that Stop Killing Cyclists (SKC) the cycling activist group were remembering Lucia Ciccioli, yet another person was killed whilst cycling by a lorry being driven on the streets of London. This time it was 21 year old Filippo Corsini, also from Italy, who was killed after he was hit and dragged 30 yards across a box junction in Knightsbridge just before 12.40pm on Monday 31st October. He was cycling to a class at Regent’s University London where he was a student.
We have set the following demands for the Mayor.
1. Ban all 0,1 & 2 star-rated HGVs by 31 Dec 2017. Only allow 5 star beyond 2020.
2. Restart the program of cycling infrastructure started by the previous mayor and appoint a full time Walking and Cycling Commissioner.
3 Commit to spend £250 million of the next budget on active transport, working towards 10% of Transport for London (TfL) budget for cycling and walking in the 2020 budget.
4 Mandatory requirement for London operators & councils to adopt Construction Logistic and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS).
5 TfL to extend Confidential Incident Reporting & Analysis (CIRAS) to all HGVs working for Crossrail and TfL immediately and – by the end of 2017 – any HGV Operator working on London’s roads should be signed up to an independent confidential safety incident reporting scheme.
6 Trial an Idaho Stop Law that allows cyclists to treat red traffic lights as “stop and give way” indicators, with full right of way for pedestrians. We demand Sadiq Khan do more than simply “promise to consider” this.
