Consultation on the enforcement location for moving traffic offences


1. Introduction


This consultation is open from 21st September and closes at midnight on 2nd November 2022.

Cambridgeshire County Council will soon have the opportunity to apply for new civil powers to enforce moving traffic regulations under Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA). This means that the County Council would be able to introduce measures to enforce certain types of moving traffic restrictions, such as banned turns and yellow box junctions in locations where road users regularly ignore them. The aims of undertaking enforcement would be to: improve highway safety, for example by preventing collisions; reduce traffic congestion; improve air quality; improve bus journey reliability; and encourage highway users to choose sustainable transport modes. Civil enforcement of moving traffic restrictions would be undertaken by using established Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera technology to issue fines sent by post for road users who continue to ignore the restrictions.
