London PCN Locations for Uber Drivers | May 2021

Here at Otto Car we’re on a mission to help PCO Drivers avoid PCNs. This challenge has been made more difficult in the last couple of months due to increased cameras, bike-lanes, and restricted routes since lockdown. Now with restrictions starting to lift and PCO drivers hitting the roads more, it’s the perfect time to brush up on which areas are affected the most.

That’s why we’ve put together a brand new May edition of PCN Hotspots for Uber drivers. We’ve been analysing our data (and the numerous letters that we’ve been receiving from councils 🎫) in order to understand where PCO driver’s have been picking up the most fines, so that we can prevent you from falling into the same traps. Don’t get caught out! 🙏

Feel free to click on the maps and save the locations! 

(Please keep in mind that the maps images highlight the general roads and areas, but it is up to our family of PCO drivers to stay vigilant and look out for the PCN warnings.)

Some Key Takeaways 

Councils have really used this time to ramp up enforcement measures for different PCN hotspots around London. Because of this it is good to stay consistently in the know. If you haven’t already then please check out our Top PCN Hotspot Article as well.

Considering that a lot of PCNs on this list are caused by restrictions to vehicle types, it could be the time to look at switching to a PCO Electric Vehicle. If this if of interest then feel free to check out our Uber Clean Air Page for more tips and info about this.

Please also feel free to share this article with any other Uber drivers that you think would benefit from this information. We personally won’t rest until as many people as possible are equipped with as much knowledge as possible about PCNs around London!
