London roads to have 20mph limit for cyclist safety
27,167 cyclists were injured in London over 2013 - with 2,192 seriously hurt and 132 killed.
In a big push to get this awful figure down, Transport for London is starting trials for new 20mph limits in high risk areas of London.
Where will the limits be?
Some parts of London, like Camden and Islington, already have a 20mph limit but the new plans will include King's Cross, Shoreditch and Farringdon Road along with other cyclist injury hot spots.
How will they be enforced?
The new limits will be monitored by digital speed cameras and mobile traffic units. Exceeding 20mph will see you risk a £100 fine and 3 points on your licence.
When's it going to happen?
18-month trials will begin next month, with the first planned for Commercial Street in Shoreditch. If the trials are successful, more areas could see 20mph limits set.
