Top PCN Hotspots 2021 For Uber Drivers
Over the last couple of months, the Otto Team have been going through stacks of letters, identifying all of the most common penalty charge notices (PCNs) that keep landing on our desk here at Otto HQ.
Since the first lockdown, councils have used this opportunity to make lots of changes to road layouts across the capital and introduce new bike lanes and hard-to-find cameras. New restricted routes were also introduced, meaning PCO drivers were potentially being caught out by the changes (which are hard to spot).
This didn’t feel right to us here at Otto Car, so we’ve been sharing our most common PCNs every week on our social media channels and emails, and now put them all together so you can find them in one handy place.
Below is a list of our top six PCNs, which covers a wide range of boroughs in London. There’s also some bonus PCN insights at the bottom of the article, focusing on the councils handing out the most tickets. Can you guess the top three?
Southwark – Manor Place Junction Braganza Street
We’ve noticed a lot of tickets from Southwark Council, who’ve changed the restrictions on vehicles entering Manor Place Junction Braganza Street. Please do not enter this road as you’ll receive a fine.
It’s understandable why PCO drivers are picking up tickets here as the signs are quite hard to read and there are a lot of temporary structures around the road, throwing off the private hire community and leading to an increase in fines.
City of London – Beech Street
