Is Abbey Street within the congestion Zone?
I have looked at the map but it is not very clear. Daughters boyfriend drove down tower bridge road from the brick. turned into Abbey street then had photo of car in abbey st. sent with a penalty charge. He paid straight away i said he should have challenged it?
I said that james, but unless the view shown is incorrect showing the c charge, he should not have paid. If he was driving down from the brick. and turned right into abbey street then the charge should now have applied!
I would guess that instead of turning right into Abbey Street from TBR he has gone down the first bit of Bermondsey Street and turned right into Abbey Street at it's junction with Long Lane. This would put him in view of the cameras and in the zone. An easy mistake to make, and an arguably safer right turn, sadly thanks to Ken, that'll cost!

1 What/where is 'the brick'?
2 When you say down, do you mean up, as in northbound?
The tricky bit is up (as in up north) near Tower Bridge, where you must turn left after the main road (Queen Elizabeth St), then double back (Tooley St) as you can't turn right into Tooley St at the lights, I often see car drivers trying to back out of the west-bound western part of Fair Street, after they have seen the cameras, causing traffic chaos. I understand that Ken can't ride a bike, does he ever drive?
The Brick is the Bricklayers arms roundabout, going down is towards tower bridge or as you quite rightly say Northbound!
As Jerry said to turn right into Abbey St. is a bit of a nightmare and lots of people do just what jerry said, but the boyfriend did not i asked him!
