Moving Traffic Enforcement Powers

The government has announced that local authorities outside of London and Wales can adopt moving traffic enforcement powers under Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004, currently enforced by the Police.

We intend to apply for these powers, as they will allow us to enforce moving traffic offences such as banned turns, waiting in yellow box junctions and breaching some weight restrictions using traffic enforcement cameras. By implementing a fair but robust approach to moving traffic enforcement, we aim to encourage compliance to make our roads safer, reduce congestion and protect public assets and infrastructure.

We are asking you to give your opinion on our plans to apply for these powers.

Please see the consultation documents for more information which are available in the consultation documents section below.

Thank you to everyone that responded to our consultation. Your comments helped inform the site chosen to accompany our application for Moving Traffic Enforcement Powers that has now been submitted to the Department for Transport. We await notification of the programme for a decision to be made.

After consideration of your responses only the Kenmore Drive Part Time No Entry site was considered suitable for application of these potential powers initially. Each future site that may warrant similar intervention will undergo a full consultation before enforcement can be undertaken, assuming the area wide MTE powers are granted to South Gloucestershire Council as a result of this application. 

The consultation feedback is now available to download below.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
