Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

In March this year the Scrutiny Committee of Haringey Council wrote in a report

"The Panel is therefore of the view that there would  be merit in introducing, subject to consultation with residents, a default 20 mph speed limit for the borough for all side roads."

On 19th July the cabinet accepted a recommendation not to do this.

Late last year researchers at RHUL published a study showing that primary school children actually cannot judge the speed of cars travelling at more than 20mph. Adults can judge the speed of vehicles upt to 50mph.
