    There were 24,580 killed or seriously injured (KSI) casualties in the year ending June 2014, a 4 per cent increase compared with the previous year.


    So far, and this is as of April, five people have died on the London roads, four of whom have been female - and all in collisions with HGVs. I believe this figure is now 10, with 8 being female Here are the details:

    1 Stephanie Turner, Stamford Hill, January 20 The first person to die in 2015 was the 29-year-old physiotherapist, who was involved in a collision with a lorry on Amhurst Road, at the junction with Bethune Road. The driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has since been released on bail. More than 200 cycle safety campaigners staged a ‘die-in’ protest a week after her death.

    2 Akis Kolloras, Homerton High Street, February 2 Greek-born 34-year-old Akis Kollaros was killed after a collision with an HGV on Homerton High Street, at the junction with McIntosh Lane. Campaigners raised £6,000 to repatriate the music producer, who lived in Dalston, back to his home country.

    3 Frederica Baldassa, Holborn, February 6 The second cyclist to die in a week in February was 26-year-old Italian fashion designer Frederica Baldassa, who was hit by a lorry around 9.20pm on a Friday night between Bloomsbury Square and Vernon Place. The driver stopped at the scene but was not arrested.

    4 Claire Hitier-Abadie, Victoria, February 19 The fourth person to be killed was 36-year-old Claire Hitier-Abadie from Marylebone, who was crushed under a tipper truck on Victoria Street during rush-hour. The French-born mother-of-two was riding a Barclays Cycle Hire vehicle, making her the second person to die using a Boris Bike in London.

    5 An unnamed woman, Lambeth Bridge, April 9 The as-yet-unnamed woman died in a collision with a lorry this morning.

      Given that our population has risen at the same rate and there are far more cyclists on our roads 'post-Wiggins' it's surprising the increase isn't higher.
      "Brighton have taken 4 points off us this season, you do realise that innit, they've taken 4 points off Arsenal Football Club. Brighton and Hove Albion have taken 4 points off ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB. Let that sink in. Let that sink in. Let. That. Sink. In blud. F*cking Brighton. Pebbles and sticks of f*cking rock. Pebbles and sticks of rock, blud. That's what they're f*cking known for."

      I wonder what the increase in vehicles on the road is since 2012?

      Less speed cameras a contributory factor to overall rise in road deaths.

      Still, we all get where we want to 30 seconds quicker.

      Significant reduction in road policing officers due to budget restraints. Fewer police on the road.

      Some of you might think that's a good thing of course, as it lessens your chances of getting caught doing something wrong.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      The chart shows that only one of the last nine years had fewer fatalities.
      Nobody wins unless everybody wins.
