• I AM pleased to hear that Fitzjohns Road is to have a 20mph speed limit with speed cameras funded by TfL rather than humps to control speeds.
Green Party councillors all over London are seeking to have such measures introduced. In Camden many of our quieter residential streets have such speed limits but there are many roads that are not controlled in this way. This needs to change.
Research shows that at speeds of 20mph and below the risk of fatalities on our roads is considerably reduced.
Making this change also helps with getting more people walking and cycling to work and school. And cameras rather than speed humps have the potential to control speeds without the noise and disturbance caused by street humps.
