Drivers who break the rules on London’s “red route” roads are set to face increased fines of £160, TfL has announced.
As of January 17, fines for offences on the TfL-managed roads will increase from £130 for the first time in over 10 years following a public consultation carried out during autumn last year.
Fines can be issued for things such as blocking a yellow box junction, parking illegally in loading bays or driving in bus lanes.
TfL has said the increased fines will improve road safety and reduce congestion on some of London’s busiest roads while contributing to improved air quality.
Despite making up just five per cent of London’s roads, red routes carry 30 per cent of all the capital’s traffic while accounting for 37 per cent of all road traffic deaths in London.
