Present-day Peterborough is a modern city, which means that most vehicles should have little difficulty on streets in the city centre. Of course, small economy cars and compacts are always easier to manage and park, but you do sacrifice a bit of comfort when compared with an SUV or other luxury vehicle.
The mandatory speed limit on all city streets within the precincts of Peterborough is 20mph. In certain areas outside populated zones or commercial districts, speeds can increase to 30mph to ease the flow of traffic. The A15, A47 and A1139 all carry maximum limits of 50mph, which can increase the further outside the city you drive. Boongate Roundabout is a prime area where CCTV and traffic cams are in effect, so be wary of yielding vehicles, cyclists and motorcycles in the area.
Peterborough City Council offers on-street metered parking on several of its streets. These pay-and-display areas are always short stay and though the tariff is constant (£1.50) the time limit can vary from 30min up to 2h. Please note that between 20:30-08:00 on-street parking is free throughout the city, if you can find a spot. The Council also administers a dozen or so car parks where you can leave your Peterborough car hire and enjoy daytime or evening pleasures. The rate at these garages ranges from £1-£2 per hour and a few are multi-storey facilities.
