Car racing has increased drastically in Wapping over the recent years, but the Police and Tower Hamlets Council appear powerless to fight it. In recent days we have had a number of collisions due to speeding, that could easily have resulted in injury or fatality.
We are working with the local community to push for a comprehensive approach to address car racing in the area. But there is an urgent need to identify and gather evidence against the most prolific offenders.
We call for the Council and Police to install speed cameras in Wapping immediately, to safeguard the lives of local residents.
