Hey guys,im doing A-level design and technology and for my selected coursework topic its related too the safety in london.
My questions are, is london safe for young people?

Do you think alot of accidents and crime happen to people because theyre not visible?

If there was a product to help you feel safer would you use it?

I'd say that with all the stabbings in the past few years, London is less safe than it used to be

Not sure what you mean by "Do you think alot of accidents and crime happen to people because theyre not visible?" - can you explain?

I'm not sure I would tbh. I mean, there are things like rape alarms but I don't carry one

What i mean is if someone was visible by lets say by wearing a light, do you thinl it could deter people with bad intentions from approaching them and making them feel unsafe.

Oh I see! I'm not sure that would make more of a difference tbh. Maybe in woodland/secluded areas but generally speaking I don't think it would have much impact :nah:

If it's not violent crime IE stabbing, shooting, rape etc, and just more 'basic' about general visibility:

1. Cyclists often feel like a noticeable danger to a drivers perspective.
2. Pedestrians in the dark are not easily visible to drivers sometimes. Majority of people wear very dark clothing which is not helpful for drivers seeing them at night and for a fully dark clothed pedestrian to suddenly step out into the road.

Both two issues could be helped by visible gadgets that are small and subtle? (IE reflective materials rather than electric light) Cyclists do have a lot of items already of course though, just some ideas anyway

Hmm, that's tricky because a lot of that, if not all of that, crime is conducted away from plain sight. As already suggested for rape, some kind of electronic alarm that can be traceable. But that seems high tech for an A level project? Not sure if that is or not. Perhaps some gadget/method of being able to get proof/an image of the assailant/robber etc. that can not be obvious to be stolen? (IE can't take a phone photo - it would get taken). Again, that may only get high tech...
