Red Route

Sadiq Khan wants to increase fines to £160 for motorists who break rules on London's Red Routes: RAC blasts £30 hike as a 'money-grab' and 'war on drivers and businesses' Tansport for London (TfL) wants to increase the maximum fine handed out for red route contraventions to £160.

A consultation for the proposals has been launched and closes on September 19.

The maximum penalty charge notice (PCN) for red route contraventions is £130, a fee that was set in 2011.

TfL says the higher fine level will be a more effective deterrent and will, over time, lead to a “reduced level of contraventions and help to keep the road network safe for everyone”.

If the proposals go ahead, the £160 maximum penalty would be reduced to £80 if paid within 14 days.

Red routes make up 5% of roads but carry 30% of the traffic. Stopping is generally prohibited on these roads, outside of designated locations and times clearly marked by signs. 

TfL says failing to follow the rules and signs at junctions creates safety risks, disrupts traffic and creates congestion.

Siwan Hayward, TfL’s director of compliance and policing, said: “London’s network of red routes plays a vital role in keeping people moving across the capital and it’s really important that everybody follows the rules that are in place to keep roads clear and to keep people safe.

“We’d much rather people follow the rules than fine them, and the proposed increase in fines is intended to increase compliance with the rules and make streets safer, cleaner and less congested for everyone. I’d urge people to have their say on these proposals and we welcome all feedback on our plans.”   

  

TfL’s consultation is now open at: haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/penalty-charge-2021.
