Urgent appeal

Please donate today to support our "No More Lethal Lorries" campaign

LCC is raising £20,000 to boost our campaigning against the threat of lethal lorries.

Too many cyclists are killed by heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) in London, and decision-makers aren’t doing enough about it.

HGVs are responsible for half the cyclist deaths in London, and numbers aren’t falling, even though road safety overall is improving.

The personal cost to families and friends is immeasurable - victims this year include:

  • A 46-year-old professor of Hispanic studies, run over by a left-turning lorry near Tower Bridge.
  • A 21-year-old medical student killed on his way to Guy’s Hospital.
  • A 28-year-old charity worker, also a talented musician, crushed to death on a roundabout in Hackney.
  • A middle-aged father of three young children, killed by a cement mixer in Pimlico.

The money raised from our appeal will boost LCC’s campaigning, led by our acclaimed expert in lorry safety, Charlie Lloyd (pictured).

Charlie is pressing decision-makers to accept LCC’s five-point danger-reduction plan.

One major part of our campaign is for every lorry driver to be given cycle-awareness training.

Thanks to the work of LCC and others, this kind of training is already standard in the borough of Lambeth, and similar on-bike training is expected in Southwark and Hammersmith & Fulham.

With your support LCC can work towards to replicating these successes in every London borough.

Please donate whatever you can afford, however small.

It’s only through the backing of cyclists like you that LCC will be able to stop more cyclists from being killed by large lorries in London.
