London's parking fines to move up a notch?

The Association of London Government (ALG) is expected to announce this month that parking fines will be raised, despite criticism not only from motorist groups but also from within the parking industry.

Following a lengthy consultation process the ALG look likely to agree a scheme which will see the three charging bands (A, B, C) rise from L80/60/40 to L120/80/60. Band A covers red routes and the majority of inner London, B covers outer London and C is the off-street penalties in some of outer London.

The changes would bring charges in line with fixed fines imposed by the police since November 2000. ALG have reacted to criticisms by saying that many boroughs across the city have found it hard at current levels to achieve self-financed parking enforcement schemes.
