Freedom of Information Request

Legislation in relation to Code 27 without need for signage.

Received: 9 July 2020

I am still waiting for clarification as to the legislation which enables enforcement of an alleged code 27 contravention without the need for clear signage.

Section 73 of The Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA 2004) does not reference dropped kerbs and makes no reference to The London Local Authorities and Transport for London Act 2003 (TLA 2003).

However, Section 86(1) of the TMA 2004 prohibits parking adjacent to a dropped kerb, and Section 86(9) of the same informs that this prohibition is enforceable "as if imposed... by an order under Section 6 of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984" (RTRA 1984).

Regulation 18(1) of The Local Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 (TLAT 1996) directs that where orders have been made relating to any road, such as an order under Section 6 of the RTRA 1984 for example, traffic signs should be placed.

I therefore repeat my simple request. Which legislation permits the enforcement of a code 27 contravention without the need for clear signage?

I look forward to hearing from you BY E-MAIL ONLY with a clear explanation to the above.
