Islington drivers most law-abiding in London ?

It might just be the case reports the Islington Gazette.
In October 2012 the council made 25 local main roads, such as Blackstock Road and Caledonian Road, subject to a 20 mph speed limit.
Transport for London maintained roads like Seven Sisters Road are still 30mph, and an investigation by the Gazette shows that in the first six months that the 20 mph limit applied neither the police, nor the council, has issued any penalties for motorists driving between 20 and 30 mph.

Gridlock might be a factor?

Was anyone enforcing the 20mph limit, i.e. attempting to identify offenders?

VFTS - um, er, it seems not; given the Gazette article the post sprung from is mostly about allegations that having brought in the 20 mph limit no one is actually bothering to monitor compliance ...
