Moving traffic enforcement powers consultation

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Introduction

This autumn, Bristol City Council will apply to the Secretary of State for the power to enforce ‘moving traffic offences’. Moving traffic offences include:

  • Driving through a 'No Entry' sign
  • Going the wrong way in a one-way street
  • Turning left or right where this is not permitted
  • Driving where and when motor vehicles are not allowed

Moving traffic offences create unsafe environments for the public, placing all road users at risk. People with limited mobility and additional access requirements are especially vulnerable to drivers who ignore the rules of the road.

We propose to use these new enforcement powers initially at six problem locations where there are high numbers of traffic offences. The council will be able to increase the amount of enforcement at these sites, to reduce the number offences. In this consultation, we are seeking your views on the proposal that the council takes on enforcement of moving traffic offences at the following six sites:

  • Hockey’s Lane and Fishponds Road junction, Fishponds (signal-controlled junction)
  • King Georges Road and Queens Road junction, Withywood (signal-controlled junction)
  • Lower Redland Road between Elgin Park and Exeter Buildings, Redland (one way)
  • Furber Road between Raeburn Road and St Anne’s Road, St George (one-way)
  • Bath Bridge Roundabout and Cattle Market Road junction (signal-controlled junction)
  • Hareclive Road and Anton Bantock Way junction, Withywood (signal-controlled junction)

Get involved

We propose to adopt moving traffic enforcement powers and would like to know your views on our plans to apply the new powers at the six locations described above.

The six-week consultation will run from Tuesday 20 September until Tuesday 1 November 2022.

To give your views, please fill in the short survey.
