Check on rogue bus drivers
I AM pleased that the Mayor has responded to sustained pressure from myself and road safety campaigners and rolled out a confidential whistleblowing scheme for London bus drivers.
This should help reduce road collisions and other incidents. Passengers will also benefit from staff being able to pass on complaints about issues of safety and comfort.
The number of people knocked down by London buses has been too high for too long. By involving front line staff more, the Mayor’s transport chiefs will get a better picture of what’s going wrong and will hopefully be able to make the streets safer for everyone. DARREN JOHNSON AM Green Party Member
