Evening Standard: "Mayor under pressure to halt rise in pedestrian deaths in London"

"The Mayor has been warned that a recent rise in the number of people killed or seriously injured - known as KSIs - could continue unless he sped up reforms.

"... Almost 70 pedestrians were killed and another 1,054 seriously injured - an average of three people a day - in 2012, the last year for which figures are available.

"Val Shawcross, chair of the London Assembly’s transport committee, said:
"It's time to redress the balance and place equal safety emphasis on pedestrians. It is not right that pedestrian deaths and injuries are treated as acceptable – they’re not, and urgent steps are needed to stop the rise in its tracks. If an average of three people per day were killed or seriously injured on the buses, there would be an uproar."
