The Council has revealed the home location of the drivers caught by their ANPR “invisible policeman” cameras.
A total of 8197 separate addresses have received notifications of penalty charges. Of these 5481 (67%) are addresses outside the YO postcode area.
As expected about 70% of the penalty notices issued for the new Coppergate restrictions were sent to local York drivers.
On Lendal Bridge, the reverse was the case with 22% sent to York drivers and 78% to visitors.
The question was asked at last weeks Council meeting and Cllr Merrett’s answer was:
To the Cabinet Member for Transport, Planning and Sustainability from Cllr Runciman: “Could the Cabinet Member provide a breakdown of the ANPR penalty notices issued since the Lendal Bridge closure and Coppergate restrictions by residents living inside York and residents living outside York?”
1852 individual postcodes recorded.
1280 ‘YO’ postcodes & 572 non-‘YO’ postcodes. This equates to a 70%-30% split
• Lendal Bridge:
6340 individual postcodes recorded.
1436 ‘YO’ postcodes & 4904 non-‘YO’ postcodes. This equated to a 22.5%- 77.5% split.”
