During the period of 30 November 2014 to 31 December 2018, the total number of penalty charge notices issued for non-payment of the Dart Charge was 11,058,152. Highways England have a comprehensive signage strategy for road users, including use of advance directional signs, variable message signs and safety signs. This is reinforced by public information campaigns to inform drivers, both in the UK and overseas, about the payment arrangements and the road layout.
