Roadside penalties to increase for vans, trucks and buses

The Department for Transport has recently announced that the fixed penalty levels will increase from 16 August 2013.

These changes are taking place after public consultation from road safety groups & the police services in 2012. These changes also increase the graduated fixed penalties and financial deposits for vans, trucks and buses. Roadworthiness, loading and drivers’ hours rules will result in higher penalties at the roadside.

Rise in penalties as follows:

  • £30 > £50
  • £60 > £100
  • £120 > £200
  • £200 > £300

Alastair Peoples the Chief Executive of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency said:

“Increases will also be made to the maximum deposit that we can take at the roadside from offending overseas vehicles. Penalty points will not change.”
