Brake has published the latest episode of its Time to Zero In podcast series, in which Stuart Reid discusses TfL’s Vision Zero Action Plan.The road safety charity is using the podcasts to explore issues, trends and innovations in road safety and active travel that can help achieve a world in which no one is killed or seriously injured on the roads.

In the latest episode, Josh Harris, Brake’s campaigns director, speaks with Stuart Reid, head of insights and development at Transport for London – who leads on TfL’s Vision Zero action plan. 

The discussion ranges from unpicking the thinking behind TfL’s plan to eliminate deaths and serious injuries from London’s roads by 2041, the challenges and progress to date, and how TfL has taken on the Vision Zero baton from other cities.

At the end of the episode, Josh is joined by Damian Penney, European vice president of Lytx – a provider of video telematics and fleet management solutions – who explains why road safety is so important to his organisation.

    Within the context of “Vision Zero” how do you deal with those that die of natural causes? Example, a driver has a heart attack and crashes. Another has an epileptic seizure and crashes, killing him/herself and passengers. Another loses consciousness and kills a pedestrian. The Vision Zero ideal is (in my humble opinion) simplistic and frankly completely misunderstands human nature.
