Big change for motorists as road fines are raised to £160

A MAJOR change to road fines means motorists in London will pay £160 from £130 if they break the red rules.

The routes are administered by the London Department for Transport and have their own special rules to keep traffic on London’s busier roads to a minimum.

The price increase is set to take effect from January 17, 2022.

On red lines, TfL can penalize drivers for a number of road traffic violations including stopping at a yellow intersection, parking on the side of the road, and making U-turns.

The nearly 25% increase comes as TfL claims it will be a “more effective deterrent” following a 26% increase in penalty fee notices (PCNs) issued between 2016-2019.

65% of TfL consultation respondents opposed the increase but despite this, Sadiq Khan signed a proposal on December 8, 2021, to introduce a fee increase.

AA does not believe there is a justification for the increase.

There is no reason to increase the Notice of Penalty (fines) amount, a view shared by nearly two-thirds (65%) of consultation respondents, said Edmund King, president of the AA. “

“AA fully accepts the need for fair and efficient road traffic enforcement to prevent selfish and illegal driving from interfering with other road users.”

“However, enforcement needs to be fair, proportionate, and allow for decision-making while providing deterrence.”

What are the red route rules?

London’s red routes are the main and most congested streets of the city.

They are clearly marked by lines on the road that are red instead of the characteristic yellow.

They represent only 5% of the total road length in London but these selected roads carry more than 30% of London’s traffic.

Along the red lines, there are signs indicating what you can and cannot do while traveling along those roads.

TfL monitors parking and loading, yellow box intersections, prohibited turns and bus lanes on red routes.

With the penalty increased to £160, it drops to £80 if paid in 14 days.

If payment is made after 28 days that amount will increase by 50% to £240.
