We enforce moving traffic contraventions across the borough.

This means that motorists entering box junctions without a clear exit or entering a road when prohibited to do so by "no entry" or "no left turn" or "no right turn" signs will receive a penalty charge notice by post.

The penalty charge for a moving traffic contravention is £130.00, discounted by 50% if paid within 14 days.

A list of locations where these contraventions are enforced is available at CCTV enforcement locations
