Speed limit

The speed limit in Haringey is 20 mph, except for some main roads and streets managed by Transport for London (TfL).

Benefits of a 20 mph limit 

Research shows that: 

  • there is a link between lower speeds and a drop in the number of serious road collisions  
  • driving more slowly at a steady pace saves and reduces pollution (unless an unnecessarily low gear is used) 
  • cyclists and pedestrians feel safer on roads 
  • healthier ways of getting around, like walking and cycling, are encouraged
