New initiaitve to keep London’s roads safe welcomed


TfL has today marked the two year anniversary of the London Freight Enforcement Partnership (LFEP) that works to make London’s roads safer by raising compliance standards across the freight industry.

The LFEP is a joint partnership between TfL, City of London Police, Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), and the Metropolitan Police Service to target dangerously non-compliant drivers, vehicles and operators on London’s roads.

Since the launch, more than 33,000 freight vehicles have been stopped and checked, and 9,114 fixed penalty notices and traffic offence reports have been issued, acting as deterrents and forcing operators to improve their standards.

The multi-agency approach to road safety has led to 106 arrests, 221 vehicles seized and 12 operator licences being revoked, sending a clear message that dangerous freight practices will not be tolerated.
