Well, I never really planned to go down the activist route with this blog but I guess sometimes its too important to ignore. If you don’t live in the UK you can pretty much ignore the rest of this update!
We all know that Heavy Goods Vehicles is the leading cause of cyclist deaths in London. Luckily, there is a unit in London that inspects HGVs to make sure they have safety measures in place that can reduce the chances of death or injury. This is the only unit in the country and it has been highly successful. Now Boris wants to close it.
Well, luckily there is something you can do to help and it won’t take more than 2 minutes or any cash so put your wallet away!
Go to: http://www.writetothem.com/
and find out who your member of parliament (MP) is
See if your MP has signed the form. If they haven’t tsk tsk
Contact them using: http://www.writetothem.com/ and ask them to sign the Early Day Motion.
Note: Make sure you contact the councillor in your area because they won’t reply to you otherwise.
Please help by spreading this round to everyone you know.
Ah end of bit of activism for another day!
