We answered

Our ref: FOI-1713-1819/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 26 September 2018 asking for information about the make of vehicles that receive the most penalty charge notices (PCNs).

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we hold some of the information you require. You asked:

Please list the make and model of the top 5 individual vehicles that have accrued the most PCNs from TfL, along with the amount of PCNs issued to those vehicles.

Prior to issuing a PCN, we send details of the contravening vehicle’s registration to the DVLA. They then provide us with the registered keeper’s information along with details of the make and model of the vehicle, if they are available.

The table below attached shows the number of penalties issued to the top five individual contravening vehicle registrations. The data covers the period 1 January 2015 to 2 October 2018.

We do not hold details of the make and model of four of the five vehicles.

While the penalties have been incurred by vehicle displaying the five registrations it is possible to transfer a registration from one vehicle to another. Therefore it does not necessarily mean it is the same actual vehicle incurring the penalty.

Please be advised the PCN total is for both non-payment of the Congestion Charge and for parking contraventions on our network.

If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
