The Outer Circle – 20 mph speed limit

As you will be aware, the speed limit of The Outer Circle has recently been reduced to 20mph and offences of excessive speed are being enforced by the Metropolitan Police.

The changes can be viewed here.

This speed limit relates to motor vehicles and is covered by Section 124 of The Highway Code. It does not relate to pedal cyclists.

This does not mean that pedal cyclists cannot be prosecuted. Sections 28/29 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 gives Police the power to prosecute cyclists for Dangerous and Careless cycling.

The CEPC will liaise with the Police to establish the stance they are taking on this and to air the concerns of residents.

Should any resident wish to discuss this further, please call or email me our Traffic & Security Manager, Martyn Floodgate.

Please drive carefully.
