The photo of your car looks like it is not at that corner but the one opposite, making an illegal left turn from Peckham Rye South bound into East Dulwich road, because there is grass instead of a building and 2 black uprights close to eachother on the pavement.

Nah there is enough in the photo for them to work out it's taking a left turn at the junction from East Dulwich Road onto Peckham Rye.

It's definitely not that corner. If you expand you can even make out the small fence post on the grass.

I've just gone onto the web site to the challenge it, and the photos are clearer and I've made a mistake. It's on the other corner (the one corner you cannot turn left). I recollect now a few weeks ago driving down Peckham Rye and there was a huge log jam, did a u-turn and took an illegal left turn.. in the other photos you can see a van in front of me has led the way with a left turn as well. Ouch! They must have a made a lot of money that day the council :-(

Yes you're turning left from Peckham rye onto ED rd. It's been fun trying to solve the mystery - good you cracked it yourself. You'll have to cough up.

I've had quite a few fines from turnings and one way streets in bermondsey due to not knowing the streets and not seeing the signs in time. Pain in the neck.

Lucky I saw the option of challenging it online to see the clearer photos otherwise I'd be heading towards 200 fine. So I'm putting this experience down to saving myself 135!

I've challenged private parking fines and won, buy they are known to be a racket. I wouldn't ever bother challenging southwark's network of spycams.

Maybe someone could help explain why I have got a Penalty Notice for turning right from Peckham Rye Junction onto East Dulwich Road. 'Failing to drive in the direction shown by the arrow on a blue sign'. I'm sure you can usually turn right? If it was a blue sign would that be temporary one?.....

Wish I hadn't gone to the re-cycling centre....should have called bulk waste collection for 16!

You're not allowed to turn right, or left there (assuming you were heading Southbound at the Kings Arms junction.) The vertical white arrow on the blue sign means ahead only. It's not a temporary sign.

Yep - no right turn - ahead only.
