Road safety borough toolkits

We run a range of safety campaigns aimed at drivers and cyclists, teenagers, older pedestrians, motorists and powered two-wheeler riders.

London boroughs can use campaign assets in their own channels, including posters, leaflets, films and radio adverts. To request toolkits, including assets, for our safety campaigns, please email

You can find other road safety documents on the Road safety page in Publications.

Safe Streets for London

The Safe Streets for London plan was designed to support the Vision for Cycling of former Mayor Boris Johnson, outcomes from the Roads Task Force, and to build on the progress in making roads safer.

The plan is being delivered through a partnership of all those who design, build, manage and use London's roads.

Safer Travel at Night

This ongoing initiative aims to raise awareness of the dangers of using unbooked minicabs, provides access to safer travel alternatives and involves action by TfL and the police against illegal cab activity. We produce the campaign in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service, British Transport Police and City of London police.

The initiative - running since 2002 - offers several tools that boroughs can promote to help their residents and employees stay safe when travelling at night.

Unbooked minicabs and illegal cabs

Unbooked minicabs, illegal cabs and touts pose a serious risk to the travelling public and are linked to some of the most serious crimes in London including sexual assault and robbery.

Only taxis (black cabs) can be hailed on the street and all minicab journeys must be booked with a a licensed minicab operator, using an app, over the phone or at a minicab office. Any minicab that isn't booked is illegal, uninsured for the purposes of carrying passengers, and unsafe.


Findaride is an online search facility that allows users to search for licensed private hire operators by the type of service offered (minicab, limousine, school runs etc) and the areas they serve.

Find out how to add the Findaride service to your own site.

Talks and events

If you organise or hold events and would like someone from TfL or our police partners to come along and talk about safer travel and how people can stay safe when travelling around London then please contact us.

Students in your area

Students, especially those new to London, may not be familiar with the rules about cabs and how to stay safe when travelling late at night. Contact us if you would like to discuss the opportunities for promoting Safer Travel at Night in London to students in your borough.

Enforcement Activity and reporting problems

Cab enforcement police officers across London are working with TfL to keep your residents and employees safe by cracking down on unbooked minicabs, unsafe vehicles and preventing cab related sexual offences, using both undercover and high visibility tactics to deter, detect and apprehend offenders.

Find out how to report any problems with unlicensed or illegal cab.
