unstar this property answer text <p>Highways England is able to consider reasons for non-compliance when customers opt to challenge their Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) through the relevant representations process. Highways England considers the reasons presented on a case by case basis. If the representation is rejected, the customer may appeal that decision through the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.</p><p>The current compliance rate is 95 per cent, demonstrating that the vast majority of customers are using the scheme successfully. Highways England undertakes a variety of measures to enable and encourage compliance, providing a range of payment options, including pre-pay accounts; allowing for payment up to midnight the day after a crossing is made; and allowing an additional 14 days for payment for first time offences. In addition, it also has a comprehensive signage strategy which includes the use of advance directional signs, variable message signs and safety signs. This is reinforced by public communications campaigns to inform drivers, both in the UK and overseas, about the payment arrangements and the road layout.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has provided guidance to motorists travelling in the EU after 29 March through various channels.</p><p> </p><p>The technical notice ‘Vehicle Insurance if there’s no Brexit Deal’ was published in September 2018. It outlines that, in the event of ‘no deal’ and the European Commission not taking a decision to allow the UK to remain in the Green Card-free area, drivers of UK registered vehicles will need to carry a motor insurance Green Card when driving in the EU and EEA. The guidance also encourages UK registered drivers towing a trailer to contact their insurer to obtain two Green Cards, one for their trailer and one for their towing vehicle.</p><p> </p><p>Guidance has also been published on trailer registration. UK motorists must register commercial trailers weighing over 750kg and non-commercial trailers weighing over 3,500kg before they can travel to or through most EU and EEA countries. UK motorists can also voluntarily register non-commercial trailers that weigh over 750kg. The Government issued new communications in February 2019, which echoed the guidance in the technical notice. The campaign is live with radio, digital ads and social media directing citizens to gov.uk.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to work constructively with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, the Association of British Insurers and the rest of the insurance industry to ensure motorists are aware of these messages and are prepared for a ‘no deal’ scenario.</p><p> </p><p>On motor insurance, our intention is to remain part of the Green Card-free circulation area as the UK will continue to meet all of the requirements when we leave the EU. This would allow UK drivers to continue to be able to drive in EU Member States without the need for a Green Card. We continue to urge the Commission to issue a decision on the UK’s membership in the Green Card-free circulation zone.</p>

The Government has stated that all rail enhancements will be led by the needs they are fulfilling, rather than the methods of fulfilment. We are committed to electrification where it delivers benefits for passengers and value for money – and since 2010 we have delivered 25 times more route miles of electrification than was delivered between 1997 and 2010 - while also focusing on exploitation of new technology, such as bi-mode, hydrogen and battery technology trains. We welcome any proposals on how electrification projects can be delivered more efficiently.</p><p> </p> more like this
