Tram safety petition & my four-point plan for Croydon's commuters
Alongside the families of the victims of the Croydon tram crash, I have launched a petition to change the law to make our trams safe. Over 3,000 people signed the petition in its first week, and it would mean a lot if you could add your name.
Three years after the tram crash, the families are still waiting for justice. The news that no individual or organisation would be charged over the crash exposed a massive gap the law: there is no specific safety legislation relating to trams, meaning offences such as death by dangerous driving do not exist on tramways.
If I'm re-elected as your MP on 12th December, it will be one of my top priorities to take this petition to Parliament and Downing Street to push for urgent action and ensure a tragedy like the Croydon tram crash never happens again.
