Havering Council’s Cabinet will meet tonight to decide how to adopt powers allowing it to fine motorists breaking traffic contraventions.

If an agreement is reached fines of £135, reduced by 50 per cent if paid within two weeks, could be handed out from September 18 – following a three month grace period.

Fines could be handed out for contraventions including taking illegal U turns, stopping in box junctions and using restricted routes such as bus lanes.

A list of 251 specific contraventions at sites across the borough has been compiled where enforcement could be applied to help “improve driver behaviour leading to improved traffic flow”.

The report states that the income from fines would support the cost of the enforcement, with any extra money used to improve road transport provision.
