Check on rogue bus driv­ers

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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

Lon­don As­sem­bly
