Sadiq Khan has responded to the petition we supported about the reinstatement of traffic safety cameras on the A10 in London Borough of Enfield.
The Mayor recognises the strength of feeling in the local area about this issue. The Mayor has put in place a Vision Zero approach to road danger. As well as aiming to eliminate deaths and serious injuries from road collisions by 2041, this means taking action to tackle dangerous behaviour on our roads, such as speeding.
In light of residents’ concerns, there is now increased effort as a partnership between Transport for London (TfL), the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), and the London Borough of Enfield. This work will crack down on motorists exceeding the speed limit on the A10. This initiative includes new MPS enforcement operations on the A10 and the borough introducing a ‘public spaces protection order’ to support the police to stop incidents of ‘car-cruising’ meets on the A10 retail parks, which will be in place soon.
As part of this work, TfL is introducing mobile speed camera enforcement in the short-term. It is also investigating the feasibility of long term enforcement solutions such as average speed cameras. I hope this reassures you that the Mayor and TfL are taking this issue seriously. Yours sincerely Public Liaison Officer Greater London Authority
