OMG! Condolences to the friends and family of this poor woman.
Despite some comments, Boris's people are doing some things to help reduce the number of these horrors. We think they are close to including on-bike cycle training in the lorry driver CPC courses run by TfL, if they can get the approval from the authorities. We need to keep pushing for councils and companies to take up this training.
Ed mentioned that this is the 8th death for 2011 recorded in this forum. The official stats will only count 5 of these, of the others one was a pedestrian, one happened outside the London GLA boundary and one is believed to be 'natural causes' - something like a heart attack or stroke. In the same time around 20 pedestrians have been killed, at least 5 of them hit by lorries.
