Increase in Congestion Charge PCN
By Amanda | 15-01-2018
TfL has introduced new, steeper, fines for non-payment of congestion charges in an attempt to improve compliance.
Transport for London (TfL) has introduced an increased Congestion Charge Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) as of the 2nd January 2018. In addition to this, a proposed rise for offences on TfL's road network may follow later in the year, subject to a review by the Secretary of State.
Whilst somewhat controversial, the Congestion Charge has certainly played a key role in reducing the volume of vehicles entering central London. The charge can be paid online or via other methods within a certain timeframe around a vehicle entering the charging zones, however fines for not paying this charge encourage (also punish) drivers to be compliant.
Data shows that since 2012 there has been an increase of 12% in the number of motorists failing to comply and being issued with Congestion Charge PCNs.
TfL have communicated that an increase from £65 to £80 for this fine will reduce this percentage. So the message? Make sure you may the congestion charge when you visit Lonbdon and avoid being seriously out of pocket!
