TfL issues thousands of fines for Paralympic Network violations

Transport for London has revealed how many warnings and fines it has issued to motorists for flouting the Olympic and Paralympic Route Network rules.

There are more than eight miles of dedicated lanes are in place across London, all in use at different times to cater for Paralympic traffic.

Speaking on BBC News, Leon Daniels from TfL told reporters that more than 15,000 warning letters have been sent out and 8,000 fines have been issued for those continuing to use the lanes without permission.

Mr Daniels commented; “The warnings are for those who may have accidentally entered the lanes once but for those who are monitored to be continually using them have been issued fines. To put that number into perspective, that’s far less than is issued for congestion charge issues.’

The Games Lanes will operate from 06:00 to midnight and will be run flexibly and opened to general traffic if the demand from Paralympic vehicles is low.
