Traffic Penalty Tribunal TRO Library

Welcome to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal’s Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) Library.

A TRO is an official order (bylaw) made by an authority under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, which details the nature and extent of traffic restrictions in a certain area. These restrictions can relate to parking, bus lanes, littering from vehicles and (in Wales only) moving traffic. A contravention of these controls, as detailed in a TRO, may lead to a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) being issued.

The Traffic Penalty Tribunal maintains this library of TROs (accessed by web links) to improve access to the documents by Appellants and Authorities during the course of an appeal, as well as for general information.

Guidance for Appellants submitting an appeal to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.

If the Authority chooses to contest your appeal, they will upload their evidence to your online case file, which should include a link to the specific TRO within this library.
