Fines At Box Junctions

Cardiff Council has just revealed plans to install a network of fixed and mobile cameras and penalise drivers who use bus lanes or stop in yellow box junctions as much as £70.

This new system similar to that which is already in force in London is due to come into effect in December.

The scheme will apply to unauthorised use of bus lanes, cars which stop in box junctions and parking that blocks access to schools.

This gives rise to the question of money-making by local authorities, something that councils in London have been under fire for. An investigation found last year that some councils in London were discussing financial targets for certain junctions.
