Transport for London announced that penalty charge notices on red routes will rise from £130 to £160 from Monday January 17.AA president Edmund King claimed there is “no justification” for the decision, but TfL insisted the move will “reduce road danger and disruption”.The inquiry will consider the “systemic failures” that allowed Sarah Everard’s killer to be employed as a police officer.Nearly two-thirds of respondents to a TfL consultation were opposed to the increase.According to his legal team, Djokovic was also provided with a letter from the Chief Medical Officer of Tennis Australia recording he had a medical exemption from Covid vaccination.London’s red routes are roads managed by TfL and have special rules determining when and where vehicles can stop and park in a bid to keep traffic flowing.The first part of the inquiry will start soon and is intended to conclude this year to make sure the “family get the answers they need”, the Home Office said.They make up five percent of the capital’s roads but carry 30% of its traffic.Credit: PA Ian Goode, senior milk buyer at Morrisons, said: “Wasted milk means wasted effort by our farmers and unnecessary carbon being released into the atmosphere.

Heavy traffic crawling through central London Credit: Unsplash/Anouk Fotografeert All revenue from PCNs is “invested back into London’s transport network”, according to TfL.AA president Edmund King said: “There is no justification for increasing penalty charge notice amounts from £130 to £160 on London roads managed by Transport for London.“The terms of reference agreed today for the Angiolini Inquiry are vital and will produce learning and recommendations for policing and others.”.“The AA fully accepts the need for fair and effective road traffic enforcement to deter selfish and illegal driving that impedes other road users, reduces the effectiveness of the road network, disrupts business, and can lead to increased emissions.“However, enforcement needs to be fair, proportionate and allow discretion while creating a deterrent.” Dame Elish, a former lord advocate of Scotland, described the publication of the terms of reference as a “significant step forward to progressing this vital inquiry and ensuring Sarah’s family and the wider public get a full understanding and explanation of the causes of, and factors contributing to, this tragic and harrowing murder.The AA believes that £130 fines are sufficient to provide deterrence.

” RAC head of roads policy Nicholas Lyes described the increase as “eye-watering”..He said it will make PCNs “not far off the fine for a serious motoring offence such as illegally using a handheld mobile phone”.Fines for illegal phone use while driving are £200.Siwan Hayward, TfL’s director of compliance, policing, operations and security, said: ”We are committed to keeping London moving safely and efficiently, and compliance on the Transport for London road network is essential in achieving those aims.“Non-compliance impacts London’s air quality, creates safety risks, disrupts traffic, and creates congestion for everyone.

“Increasing the penalty charge for contraventions on our road network in line with inflation will provide a more effective deterrent to drivers and improve the safety and reliability of the network.” The announcement comes just weeks after TfL confirmed a 30% increase in the Congestion Charge will be permanent..

'No excuses for universities not to deliver face to face learning' | ITV NewsThe majority of the top 24 universities in the Russell group are reportedly offering 'blended' learning this term. | ITV National News Zahawi is an ignorant government propagandist with too much authority. I’ve had enough of this dangerous talk - this out of control shower of charlatans has to be removed! If there are 'no excuses', does this mean that the Government has *finally* installed proper air filtration in classrooms and lecture theatres? If not, that seems like at least one very good 'excuse'. Online work, online learning, online BS. Seems people ask for protection only when they have to do the chores. They feel perfectly safe while going out to clubs, pubs and stadiums. Lazy bastards
