I was driving up from the roundabout where Old Kent Road meets Tower Bridge Road on Saturday, and on my way up Tower Bridge Road (where all the shops are), i briefly pulled over to run in and deliver something into the hardware store on the left. As i went to jump back in my car one of the local traders yelled something about the fact that i would have got a ticket from the CCTV cameras that are there to prevent people from stopping on what i had omitted to realise at the time was a red route. Has anyone received a ticket in this area before for commiting the same offence?
I don't think it is so much a red route issue, as a CCTV as an alternative to wardens one.
There are cameras which monitor parking next to the shops at the northern end of Kennington Road next to the IWM, and local traders have put warnings up so people don't get caught overstaying the single yellow restrictions.
Hope you got away with it - it does happen - I didn't get a Congestion Charge fine on the day my son was born, despite forgetting to pay (I had alot on my mind!!!!)
