Road safety and considerate travel
How we improve road safety
We work to reduce road casualties within the borough through training, education and awareness initiatives. We work with everyone but focus on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, school children and the elderly.
Our transport plan sets out how we overcome some of the current transport problems that affect us locally and fits into a London-wide transport strategy. We aim to improve road safety, public transport, cycling and walking facilities. For more information on our transport plan see our Sustainable Transport Supplementary Planning Document.

School crossing patrols
We provide schools in the borough with a Crossing Patrol person - someone to help you and your children cross busy roads.
Drivers who do not stop for the School Crossing Patrol Stop sign may be fined £1,000 and gain three penalty points on their licence.
We look for the best way to help pedestrians - for example, it may be more helpful to install traffic calming measures rather than providing a School Crossing Patrol.
Children's Traffic Club
TfL Discoverers is a road safety education scheme run by Transport for London for three and four year olds. It helps parents teach children basic road safety skills.
