We answered

Our ref: FOI-2289-1819/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 28 November 2018 asking for information about incidents where were injured by the internal mirrors on buses.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you require. Our safety management system on which incidents are reported does not categorise incidents against a certain part of the bus such as a mirror. We therefore are unable to differentiate those incidents which involved internal mirrors from others. The information which we do hold is published quarterly on our website at:

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
