The first blanket 20mph zone will be introduced in a London borough from next week after more than two years of planning.Hurrah! says everyone! That’ll make a real difference, yes?
But there is confusion between Islington council and the Met about how the new zones will be policed.
Police told councillors that it was too expensive to spend their time on the policy and they would not crack down on motorists if residents complained.*chuckle*
The zones will in effect be self-policing, using 20mph road signs until the council and Met reach an agreement.In other words, it’s a pointless ‘feel good’ policy (rather like the ‘Nuclear Free Zones’ that sprang up in Ken Livingstone’s day), designed to appeal to Green Party voters and idiots.
But I repeat myself…
