Westminster council have taken on an additional 30 traffic wardens to increase the total number to over 300.
The new wardens will be enforcing nightime controls and will be issuing £130 penalty charge notices. The council are in a win win situation as the wardens are being paid for via a grant from the greater London Authority and TFL.
What we do not understand is why the wardens are starting on the 5th June around 8 weeks before the Olympics!
Meanwhile Hackney council has installed ridiculous new signs that are incredibly confusing. It looks like many motorists will be receiving tickets as they will be confused by signs next to each other – one saying the zone starts and the other saying that the zone ends!
