Some guidance to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to respect other users would be very helpful and may go some way to reducing the increasing number of accidents on the roads in London!
There is guidance - it's called the Highway Code. The problem is most powered vehicle road users read it for their test then forget it, and cyclists don't bother becuase they think it doesn't apply.
Flout it badly enough and the driver will get nicked, fined, banned etc. Cyclists seem immune and they guy emntioned earlier seems typical ime. I read the other day how many cyclists were prosecuted in the UK last year for going through red lights. Go on, guess....?
Doesn't help really does it?!
