We answered

Our ref: FOI-2300-1819/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 29 November 2018 asking for information about double red route enforcement.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you require. When we issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) for stopping on a double red route we use contravention code 46 - stopping where prohibited on a red route. However this is used also for contraventions in loading and parking bays and for stopping on single reds. Therefore we cannot report solely on the PCNs issued for stopping on double red lines. 

However, information about the number of PCNs issued by all authorities in London is published annually on the London Councils website:

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
