Harriet Tory

I never met Harriet but her violent death as a lorry collided with her bicycle in this busy London junction moved me to post this collage. According to local press reports, there have been several serious bicycle-vehicle collisons at this junction over the past year. How many more cyclists must die before planners and engineers responsible for traffic safety undertake preventive measures? This junction is large and vehicles can cross unhindered at high speeds - especially dangerous if motor vehicles and cyclists are in competition for road space within the junction.
