There is a wide range of professionals contributing to the work of LRSU and the strength of their combined skills, with departments working together, maximises their results. The six main strategic areas in LRSU cover the following, all providing a coherent, holistic approach to reducing collisions and casualties:
Data & research
Information collected by the police at the scene of a collision in London is sent to the data and research team where it is stored in a database of all London collisions.
The engineering team works with the LRSU data team to identify locations on the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) and borough roads with a high number of collisions.
The motorcycle unit works with traffic police officers and European authorities to run motorcycle safety projects, enforcement and work related road safety.
Cameras & ISA
The LSCP identifies locations for speed and red light cameras. Intelligent speed adaptation (ISA) technology is being developed to reduce collisions.
