A UK council has claimed that it is seeking new powers to fine drivers who break the rules, despite concerns over the quality of road markings and signs in the borough.
Under the new rules, Stockport Council will apply for moving traffic offences enforcement powers by October 25.
Once successful, it is expected that the powers will come into effect in spring 2024, reports Manchester Evening News.
A consultation of residents, which ran from February 14 to March 28, showed overall support for the plan. However, it also highlighted issues with the current road setup.
Feedback included faded road markings, a need for more signs, and privacy concerns in regards to the use of number plate recognition cameras.
