Tonight, more than 1, 000 cyclists and drivers lay sprawled across the road outside Transport for London's headquarters, at a protest against dangerous traffic conditions. London Mayor Boris Johnson praised them for drawing attention to road safety in the capital. He said:
"This targeted operation has been hugely effective at raising awareness of road safety among motorists and cyclists.
"This is a balanced operation reminding everyone of their duty to take care of each other while out on the roads, and I hope the figures put to rest concerns by some groups that they are being singled out."
