Dear Mr Chandler

 

TfL Ref:          FOI-1335-1213

 

Thank you for your e-mail received by Transport for London (TfL) on 13
November 2012 asking for information about collisions in London.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. I can
confirm TfL holds some of the information you require. You asked:

 

If possible I would like the information broken down by year and by month:

 

TfL does not have confirmed figures for the whole of 2012 from the police
for the number of collisions involving pedestrian injury in Greater
London. For the five year period 2007 to 2011. The information below is as
reported by the Police in STATS19.

 

1.    How many pedestrian-vehicle collisions have there been in London in
the last 5 years?

 

Between 2007 to 2011, there were 25,717 collisions involving pedestrian
injury in Greater London. The number of these collisions that resulted in
one or more pedestrians being killed or seriously injured fell by 22 per
cent (1,276 to 992) over this period. 

 

2.    How many pedestrian-bicycle collisions have there been in London in
the last 5 years?

 

There have been 606 pedestrian-bicycle collisions in London between 2007
and 2011.

 

3.    How many prosecutions related to pedestrian-vehicle collisions have
there been in London in the last 5 years?

4.    How many prosecutions related to pedestrian-bicycle collisions have
there been in London in the last 5 years?

 

TfL does not hold details on prosecutions as a result of collisions in
Greater London. Prosecution data, if a decision is made to prosecute
depending on the nature of the collision and severity of injuries, is held
by the Police.

 

5.    How many pedestrian-vehicle accidents have there been on Oxford
Street in the last 5 years?

 

The number of collisions involving pedestrian injury on Oxford Street
(Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road) for the five year period 2007 to
2011 was 287.

 

6.    How many pedestrian-bicycle accidents have there been on Oxford
Street in the last 5 years?

 

There have been 20 pedestrian-bicycle collisions between 2007 and 2011.

 

7.    How many prosecutions related to pedestrian-vehicle collisions have
there been on Oxford Street in the last 5 years?

8.    How many prosecutions related to pedestrian-bicycle collisions have
there been on Oxford Street in the last 5 years?

 

Please see the response to Q3 and Q4 above.

 

9.    How many accidents have there been in Oxford Street in the last 5
years between a pedestrian and (i) TfL buses and (ii) taxis (iii) other
vehicles?

 

The number of collisions on Oxford Street involving pedestrian injury fell
by 26 per cent between 2007 and 2011. During this time, there were 287
such collisions comprising of: 128 pedestrian injury collisions involving
a bus or coach; 55 pedestrian injury collisions involving a taxi; and 104
pedestrian injury collisions involving other vehicles, as reported by the
Police in STATS19.

 

The number of bus pedestrian collisions in Oxford Street for the five year
period 2007/08 to 2011/12, as recorded by TfL bus operations, was 164.

 

The level of incidents on Oxford Street is low in relation to the number
of passenger journeys and other road users. The current trend indicates
that bus collisions with pedestrians are falling.

 

10. How many accidents have there been in Oxford Street in the last 5
years between a bicycle and (i) TfL buses and (ii) taxis (iii) other
vehicles?

 

In the attached reports we have been able to extract information about the
vehicle that was in collision with a pedestrian, however, because of the
way we hold the information about other modes of transport (including
pedal cyclists), if two or more vehicles are involved we cannot provide a
report in the same format. Please see the attached accident listings which
detail collision involving pedal cyclists, each collision will need to be
reviewed to determine the vehicles in these collisions.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
