Further to our discussion during the 2021-22 budget process, have you had any response from the Department for Transport to proposals for Transport for London (TfL) to increase the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) rate for illegal parking on red routes to match the congestion charge?

The Department for Transport wrote to Transport for London (TfL) in March 2021 following my initial query about bringing the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) fine level for moving traffic contraventions on TfL’s road network in line with the fine level for Congestion Charging. The letter stated that TfL would need to present a strong case demonstrating that a higher fine level is necessary and appropriate to ensure compliance and support network management objectives, and that it can be justified at a time when we are facing a difficult period of recovery from the pandemic. TfL is working to develop this case.
