DRIVERS are being warned not to stop on the approach road at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and surrounding access roads or they could face a charge of up to £100.

A red route no stopping zone has already been introduced on the airport approach road and the dedicated bus access route, due to growing congestion caused by vehicles stopping and blocking lanes. T Robin Tudor, head of PR for Peel Airports, said:“Unfortunately a number of vehicles continue to ignore the restrictions in place, causing congestion problems.”

A dedicated vehicle with onboard mobile CCTV and automatic number plate recognition equipment will be monitoring these roads. Evidence will be taken of any vehicles that stop on the red route with a charge of up to £100 subsequently issued to vehicle owners.

Well Mr T Robin Tudor, maybe if you gave people more than 5 minutes to park in the set down area before they got charged, people might not have to park on the approach road. Instead you introduce a £100 fine. Got to admire your greedy ingenuity.
