Trixi Mirrors and Cycle Safety (1)

Question number0233/2011
Meeting date26/01/2011

Question by John Biggs

Last July, TfL launched a number of initiatives aimed at reducing the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured in collisions with lorries. The 6-month Trixi Mirror Trial was one of these initiatives. Have the results of this trial been analysed and when will they be made public?

Answer by Boris Johnson (1st Term)

The trial has been subject to various forms of monitoring and analysis. TfL will shortly be discussing the results of the trial with the Department for Transport, with the aim of gaining permission to retain the existing mirrors and to install further mirrors elsewhere in London. TfL will publicise the results of the trial following the conclusion of these discussions.
