Point a speed gun at a speeding driver

June 22, 2018 |

Surprisingly satisfying. Though this is not the sort of number you can expect to see on the screen. You’ve got to wear hi-vis (we don’t want to catch those motorists speeding when they think no one is watching). You have … Read More

Floored by a hit-and-run?

Harper Road high jinks

April 13, 2018 |

Southwark is installing width restrictions on Harper Road but someone doesn’t like them. Soon after the concrete blocks were installed on March 29th, the blocks were moved out of position and rotated to maximise the distance between them. … Read More
