Camera enforced fines for traffic offences go live across Greenwich
Fines for poor driving will begin today across Greenwich borough as a two week grace period comes to an end.
CCTV cameras are not to be used for general parking enforcement nor speeding. They can only be used against a set number of driving offences and fine income is ringfenced to transport and highway spending.
A full location of sites can be seen below. It does not include a number of areas where poor driving can be seen on a daily basis, though does include areas many complain about such as Blackwall Lane where drivers exit the A102 in an attempt to jump queues before ignoring no right-turn signs and re-entering the road:
Offences cameras can monitor include parking on “keep clear” markings outside schools, prohibited left and right turns, U-turns, ignoring no-entry signs and stopping in yellow boxes at junctions.
Greenwich Council is one of the very last in authorities in the capital to introduce the measures and becomes the 30th of 32 to do so since powers were given 15 years ago.
