The lists below are based on data collected by Enfield Council in late November/early December 2018 - baseline data for comparing with data which will collected after implementation of the Fox Lane Quieter Neighbourhood scheme and be used to judge its effectiveness.

The data was collected in three separate batches at ten (or in one case eleven) points, as shown on the maps.  The numbers shown are totals for vehicles in both directions over the week-long collection period, maximum speeds for the week etc.
