The London Assembly Transport Committee is investigating how to improve the safety of motorcycling in London.

Motorcyclist survey

"We (LA) are conducting an online survey of individual motorcyclists so they can share their views and experiences of riding in London with the Committee. The survey is anonymous and only takes a few minutes – it is open to anyone who rides a motorcycle or other powered two-wheeler vehicle in London, including those who live outside London."

"We (LA) would be very grateful if you could share the survey link with your organisation’s members and other contacts:"



Call for submissions

We (LA) are also inviting experts and stakeholder organisations to provide formal written submissions to the investigation, following up our discussion with leading experts at the Committee’s meeting in October. We have some specific questions we hope you will address, but please also discuss any other issue you feel is relevant.


Submissions should be sent by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
