Clapham residents living on “rat run” streets fear someone will get killed unless the speed limit is dropped to 10mph. Locals on Lynette Avenue and Klea Avenue have suffered years of nuisance from motorists who use their one lane streets as a short-cut to avoid traffic on main roads.
Drivers cut down their roads to get onto Clapham Common South Side – a main route into central London. The shortcut lets them avoid going through a congested junction with three sets of traffic lights.
