Traffic camera on High Street- MEQ

This was in response to a resident calling for increased traffic calming measures down High Street, Southgate N14. 


Dear Cllr Ioannou,

Thank you for your email enquiry dated 8th May regarding speed camera’s on the High Street, N14.

Unfortunately, the council does not manage and maintain safety camera’s this is the responsibility of Transport for London (TfL). The locations for new safety cameras would be decided by them.

Alternatively, TfL have joined together with the police to create a programme called Community Roadwatch which gives local residents the opportunity to work side by side with their local police teams, and use speed detection equipment to identify speeding vehicles in their communities. To Suggest a residential area where there are community concerns around speeding, contact stating the borough you live in. Your enquiry will be forwarded to your local MPS Safer Transport Team, who will be in touch.

We are aware that driver behaviour is most likely more erratic than usual due to the lower number of vehicles on the road. The public can report dangerous, illegal, or antisocial road user behaviour directly to the police via their online reporting tool, RoadSafe London. Every report helps the police and TfL to understand where and when bad road user behaviour takes place. The information and intelligence gathered via this tool is used to inform the activity of the police and partners. The tool is available online at

I hope the above satisfies your queries, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further queries.

Yours sincerely
