If the answer to this question is yes, stopping in yellow boxes may be about to hit you in the pocket.
Drivers across the country will soon be liable for fines for offences like stopping in yellow box junctions, the Government has indicated.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps looks set to hand all local councils legislative powers to crack down on ‘moving traffic violations’ – currently only available to London and Cardiff.
While accepting the move broadly makes sense, the RAC remains concerned some councils could use their new powers as a cash cow.
Nicholas Lyes, head of roads policy at the RAC said: “Local authorities know where congestion might require some form of enforcement, particularly in the case of box junctions, so it stands to reason they should be able to improve this through the use of enforcement.
“However, we remain concerned that cash-strapped authorities may see this as an opportunity to extract more revenue from drivers.”
