  • MEPs in the European Parliament have voted to support measures which will improve the design of lorries to make them safer for cyclists.
    The new legislation, on the dimensions of trucks in Europe, will force manufactures to improve windows and mirrors to heighten cyclists' visibility - which in turn could save hundreds of lives in London and across Europe. In 2013 nine of 16 fatalities on London's roads involved lorries.


    MEPs also voted to improve the efficiency of trucks and lorries, and vitally, voted to hold back measures which could pave the way for 25-meter long ‘mega-trucks' to hit European roads.


    Jean Lambert, London's Green Party MEP, said:
    "MEPs have voted today to introduce EU measures which will make cyclists more visible to lorry drivers. These improvements will reduce the number of accidents which sadly occur on our roads. 


    "In the UK alone, thousands of cyclists are seriously injured on our roads each year. I'm therefore delighted that measures which will improve visibility for lorry drivers have been supported. As a Green MEP, I believe we must do all we can to make our streets safer and cleaner, and this can begin by making roads safer for cyclists.


    "I really welcome this vote today: We need to upgrade the cab design of lorries in order to keep vulnerable road users safe. We have seen too many deaths and serious injuries to cyclists on our roads  and of the 16 fatalities in London last year, over half involved lorries. Changes such better visibility from the cab, and better wing mirrors will help responsible  drivers avoid tragedy."


    The new regulations are expected to come into force in 2016.

  • Jean has backed a call for the UN to launch a new campaign to improve the lives of 'street children'. Speaking at a Brussels event to mark the International Day for Street Children, which takes place tomorrow (April12th), she said a global effort was needed to improve the lives and prospects of the estimated 700 million children forced to call the streets home - as many as 100,000 of them a year in London.
