      Dear Arnold

      I recently attended the The Times/Sustrans Mayoral Debate and I think that the contempt that Boris showed for Cyclists was clear for all to see.

      In noticed a press release yesterday which showed that serious injuries to cyclists in London were up by 21% and that 9 of the 16 cyclists deaths involved HGVs.

      In 2010 BEFORE the Mayors Air Quality strategy, information was given to the Mayor for his consultation process which suggested a peak time delivery ban for HGVs, which would have significantly reduced pollution. If this ban had been implemented many of the cyclists deaths and serious injuries would have been avoided.

      The campaign for a Public Inquiry into the failed Air Quality strategies of The Mayor and TFL will expose why no proper action has been taken to reduce pollution in London. The pollution issue is something that will be of concern to many cyclists, but in addition a Public Inquiry will scrutinize ALL of the failed actions of TFL which should include the failed strategies with regards to cycling safety. In order to reduce pollution it is important to enable cycling in a safe way.

      There are many simple and effective strategies which could be implemented to improve cycling safety and enable cycling in London.

      Some ideas include enclosed elevated cycle routes and better facilities for taking bikes on trains and tubes.

      Your support for this campaign would be greatly appreciated.

      Regards Dave Davies

      This is the only way to take action.




      Responsible department: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

      A Public Inquiry will expose all that has taken place and establish exactly why thousands of people have died.  The Mayor/TFL have failed to comply with Public Law and to reduce emissions in London and as a direct result 4267 people a year have died. Thousands more suffer poor health and a diminished quality of life and continue to do so on a daily basis. Children walking to school and cyclists are breathing toxic pollution. The Environmental Audit Committee critical report of the failed Air Quality standards in London and Government attempts to force action have been ignored. Many Assembly Members and Politicians have asked for action and none is taken; there has been no accountability whatsoever. The Mayor /TFL have tried to cheat Air Quality measurements The EU could impose fines of £300 million . There could be severe pollution during the Olympics, Valid ideas have been ignored i.e. a peak time delivery ban or a clean up process for diesel vehicles, conversion of taxis to electric power.
