Please note : The information provided in response to your FOIA request
has been located by carrying out a search of the electronic systems using
the individual terms ‘Road Danger Reduction Plan’, ‘Road Safety Plan’,
‘Road Safety’, ‘Road Traffic Act’ and ‘Road Traffic Act 1988’. We believe
this gives the best results for the information you have requested.
A more exhaustive search, involving all officers of the Department of the

danger. A link to this document is provided towards the end of this
response.

Safety Team regularly monitor collision information across the City of
London area. As a result of this the team actively provides education,

which includes pedestrians and cyclists; and with the assistance of the
City of London Police (CoLP), some enforcement activities.
 
3). The City of London implements numerous enhancement and highway
remodelling schemes and conducts various activities that fulfil a range of
obligations, functions, priorities and duties. Many of the measures will

are also others which specifically focuses on improving road safety for
all users. Some titles and/or links to reports highlighting these specific
schemes have been provided towards the end of this email response.
