Have your say on the introduction of enforcement by camera for moving traffic offences. 3 March to 15 April 2022. This consultation is closed.
In July 2020, the government announced plans to improve cycling and walking uptake in Gear change - a bold vision for cycling and walking.
As part of this strategy, the Department for Transport is changing the way moving traffic contraventions are enforced. Currently, only London and Welsh local authorities have powers to enforce these restrictions by the issue of a penalty charge notice.
The new regulations will be coming into effect in summer 2022, as a result, a number of new contraventions will become enforceable by councils rather than the police.
These new powers will enable enforcement of the following restrictions by camera:
One way streets
Yellow boxed junctions
Cycle and bus routes
Restricted access/weight limits
Stopping on school keep clear markings
Herefordshire Council has indicated its intention to the Department for Transport to adopt these powers in order to promote a safe environment for all road users and to allow traffic to flow freely.
Based on previous complaints and travel data, we have identified a number of locations that may benefit from this type of enforcement.
You can view a map of the locations.
