Hi. I witnessed a phone theft on Park Road Sunday evening around 6pm, roughly opposite the cricket club. 2 men on a scooter were careering down the road, overtook me in a dangerous manner, performed…Continue

Is it possible to drive legally, at 20 mph, in Haringey?

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Brown May 14, 2016. 8 Replies

In my experience the new 20 mph speed limit is being almost universally ignored.  "Almost", because I, for one, am trying to abide by it. I consider myself a law abiding driver (and cyclist, by the…Continue

Does anyone know of someone local who could weld a couple of bits of angle iron together for me?Continue

Virgin Broadband poor performance

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Brown May 8, 2013. 22 Replies

I may be alone but somehow doubt it. I have a 30mbs contract. I never get more than 20mbs but I can certainly live with that. Evenings have been a different matter for months. Sometimes and getting…Continue

"Very similar to the ones I saw. Not the same scooter though. The one I saw was a three wheeler. Obviously they use stolen scooters and dump them pretty quickly. So who knows. Seems like it is quite commonplace in Crouch End. People need to be made…"

"A recent moped mugging, thankfully not in Crouch End: http://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/heavily-pregnant-woman-knocked-down-by-moped-thugs-during-theft-a3586046.html Like I said, these thieves are getting more aggressive. As someone who gets…"

"I met up with PC Chris Allen from the CE SNT today. He's still relatively new to the area but, as an ex Muswell Hill resident, knows it quite well. A bit of background: when the SNTs were set up in the early 2000s there were six people…"

"And Miranda from Muddy Boots has posted a series of pictures from her CCTV of this alleged shop lifter (the tall man in the foreground). I had my motor bike insurance refused this month, because I do not keep it in a brick built garage, and…"

"These thieves are not going to stop - they're just going to become more aggressive. The police need to start taking action before someone gets seriously hurt. These crimes are happening in broad daylight with lot's of witnesses; how…"

"I'm not saying put it in your pocket I'm saying hold it firmly in your hand with your fingers firmly over the top - holding it out parallel to your body like it is some sort of offering is perhaps why so many get stolen - be sensible..."

Ella B. replied to James Brown's discussion Phone thieves
"This sounds like victim blaming to me. People have a right to walk around in broad daylight without the risk of being mugged. Like it or not, mobiles have replaced pretty much everything in our lives- bank cards, maps, etc. Its not realistic to keep…"

Paul Soper replied to James Brown's discussion Phone thieves
"This is a problem that needs sorting - the phone thieves are also riding on stolen bikes so there is quite a lot of crime for our bobbies to sort out.  However I have noticed that there seems to be a fashion for people to hold their phones away…"

"I think it would be a very simple and cheap thing to do just to put up some posters along vulnerable roads like Park Road to warn people of the threat. I think most people would assume these things are sporadic. What I have seen (anecdotally) is…"

"Partly agree with Ella - much of the country's income now goes on debt repayment, debt which accumulated not entirely, indeed not much, under the conservatives. Until some of this debt is repaid government must inevitably be constrained in its…"
