The Department for Transport is currently liaising with the Local Government Association to seek its views on the priority that its members outside London give to the introduction of the moving traffic contraventions provisions under part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004. A decision on the timing of implementation of these provisions will be made when these views are clear to the department.

The provisions cover a range of moving traffic contraventions as set out in Schedule 7, Part 4 of the Traffic Management Act, including those on cycle tracks and mandatory cycle lanes.

This is not the first time that legislation relating to parking has been passed but not enabled. It happen with the Road Traffic Act 1974 which would have banned all pavement parking if the relevant section (section 7) had been enabled. See for a summary of the law in relation to parking on pavements and the historical background.
