Speed bumps.....for cyclists

Monday 5th October 2009

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.
