We are applying to the government for the power to enforce moving traffic offences.
Moving traffic offences include:
- driving into a 'no entry' road
- going the wrong way in a one-way street
- turning left or right where this is not permitted
- parking in a ‘School Keep Clear’ marked space
Moving traffic offences create unsafe environments for the public, placing all road users at risk. People with limited mobility and additional access requirements are especially vulnerable to drivers who ignore the rules of the road.
We propose to use these enforcement powers at a pilot site where there are high numbers of traffic offences. The council will be able to enforce this site through Automated Number Plate Recognition cameras to reduce the number offences.
In this survey, we are seeking your views on anything else we should consider before deciding on whether to apply civil enforcement measures at this pilot location.
