At present there are 35,000 HGVs (Heavy Goods Vehicle) on a zero rating and nine cyclists and 66 pedestrians were killed in the city last year - this is according to Transport for London.
This has been reported in news.sky.com dated 30 September 2016.
Since HGVs have been directly involved in over half of cycling fatalities over the last two years, some bold action must be taken make roads safer for both cyclists and pedestrians and Mayor Sadiq Khan is determined to ensure the most dangerous zero star-rated lorries are removed from London's roads completely by 2020. The London Cycling Campaign has welcomed the new initiative.
