Schoolboy dies after bicycle collides with taxi
News article published on: 20th June 2012
The family of an eight-year-old boy who died after colliding with a black taxi on Monday 5th March has called for speed limits to be reduced.
Ali Nasralia was cycling home from school with his child minder when he was thrown three metres into the air and his bicycle was broken in two after he collided with a black taxi in Kingston.
His father said the Government should impose 20mph zones near schools to improve safety on busy road.
The accident comes almost a month to the day after the tenth cycling fatality in London, which occurred on 3rd February 2012 in Bishopsgate.
The Times newspaper is also running the ‘cities fit for cycling’ campaign which is a campaign to make cycling more safe across the UK and which Osbornes solicitors are supporting.
