Grocery delivery company Getir, has today partnered with Transport for London (TfL) and signed its road safety charter in a bid to keep motorcycle couriers and pedestrians safe on the roads in London.
The charter has 10 road safety principles and looks to address the disproportionate risk faced by motorcycle couriers and pedestrians alike.
According to TfL, between 2017 and 2021, with only 2.6% of vehicle kilometres driven, motorcycles made up 27% of fatal accidents in the capital.
Getir has worked closely with TfL, Deliveroo, Stuart, JustEat and Uber eats to develop the safety charter – part of a range of measures that TfL is taking to make London’s streets safer for all who use them, and key to the Mayor’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating death and serious injury from the transport network.
The delivery company will participate in TfL’s six-monthly Meal and Grocery Delivery Company Road Safety Forum where companies will discuss implementation and progress of the Charter, to build on ideas aimed at improving road safety.
