Planning Regenerations and Transport: Moving Traffic Enforcement consultation

This consultation is open from 11th of November 2022 until the 23rd of December 2022

Rotherham Council is asking for comments on the proposed changes to enforce moving traffic offences in Rotherham.

The Council is looking to apply to the Department for Transport for new enforcement powers to help improve road safety and reduce congestion at known problem sites.

Rotherham Council will soon have the opportunity to apply for new civil powers to enforce moving traffic regulations under Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA). This means that the Council would be able to introduce measures to enforce certain types of moving traffic restrictions, such as banned turns and pedestrianised area incursions in the interest of public safety.

The aims of undertaking enforcement would be to: improve highway safety, for example by preventing collisions; reduce traffic congestion; improve air quality; improve journey time reliability; and safeguard pedestrians.

Civil enforcement of moving traffic restrictions would be undertaken by using established Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera technology to issue penalties sent by post for road users who continue to ignore the restrictions.
