A Southwark Cyclist volunteer will be holding the speed gun and shouting out car speeds on Lordship Lane. With him will be PCSO Kevin Phillips writing down car numbers, makes and colours.  A succession of drivers, spotting them, will be standing on their brakes. It's a good way to help them remember what the speed limit is (20mph for those interested).  One small step towards putting the motor car in its place. To join in, mail Kevin on Kevin.j.Phillips@[met.police.uk. He's…

salter road/lagado mews London, SE16 5PD United Kingdom + Google Map

A Southwark Cyclist volunteer will be pointing a speed gun at hurriedly braking drivers on Salter Road. With her will be PCSO Kevin Phillips writing down number plates, make and colour of those who didn't stamp on the brakes hard enough. Getting noted down for the first time gets you a letter from TfL pointing out the error of your ways.
