Speed bumps.....for cyclists
A local residents’ association in Islington has installed speed bumps for cyclists on a no-car backstreet after a series of complaints about cyclists.
The yellow and black plastic speed bumps were installed after dozens of complaints by residents to Homes for Islington, the firm that runs the borough's housing estates.
Cyclists use the 250-metre narrow road as a cut-through to avoid the traffic-congested main highway. Residents say the move on the pedestrian-only backstreet graphically highlights the dangers of speeding cyclists.
