About the London Road Safety Council

It is likely that around 28,000 people will be injured on roads in the Greater London Area this year, some 3,000 of whom will be killed or seriously injured.

The London Road Safety Council's aim is to reduce these needless casualties by producing and promoting resources and publicity materials and providing a forum to discuss road safety issues.

The Council is unique in London in that it has a membership of elected council members and professional road safety officers from the London boroughs. Transport for London (TfL) and other stakeholders, including the Metropolitan Police and City of London Police forces, are also represented.
