For the first two weeks there will be warning notices – after that fines

From 1 August, Bexley will join 28 other London boroughs in enforcing moving traffic contraventions.

Moving traffic contraventions include banned right or left turns, no entries, blocking a yellow box junction, going the wrong way in a one way street and illegal U-turns.

Enforcement will begin on 1 August and will take place using the council’s existing CCTV mobile enforcement vehicles.

For the first two weeks, nil charge Warning Notices will be served from August 1 to 15, to help raise awareness of the change.

From 16 August, where the council records a moving traffic contravention, the owner of the vehicle will be issued with a moving traffic penalty charge notice.

Bexley council claims the change will improve traffic movement and road safety, help ensure the free flow of traffic and bring Bexley into line with established good practice already common across London.

More information is available online at www.bexley.gov.uk/parking, along with details of how to pay a penalty charge notice, or appeal if you feel it has been issued without justification.

Signs will be placed in locations where moving traffic contraventions will be enforced to ensure that all motorists are aware camera enforcement is taking place.
