I just had a letter from TfL, cancelling a fine they had issued me for stopping in the box junction next to Peckham bus station. I had definitely stopped in the box, it goes to show it is worth putting in an appeal.
TfL’s letter says:
Due to an operator administrative error relating to the above penalty charge, the representation has been accepted and the penalty charge has been cancelled.
It also then says that on this occasion they decided to “exercise discretion”. So it’s not necessary a black and white thing. When I filled in the “representation” box I had simply said that if I had stopped in the box, it must have been because somebody changed lanes in front of me and blocked my exit, and anyway it was not possible to tell from the one photo whether I or not I was just moving slowly and could I please see photos from 10 secs before and after. All a bit speculative, but I don’t make a habit of deliberately clogging up box junctions so I’m glad I don’t have to pay a fine this time
