All M5, M6 and motorway points around Birmingham where drivers could face a £100 fine

With drivers driving in closed lanes being fined for a new highway camera charge, we highlight all the hotspots in the area where police can enforce this law.

Police forces can impose a £100 fine and three penalty points on a driver’s license or assist anyone driving in a closed lane with a red X on the sled and now have auto-detection cameras to assist them.

Smart highways have been upgraded to add red X and high-tech camera systems to better manage traffic flow and reduce congestion by opening and closing lanes and using variable speed limits.

new automatic cameras can now catch you for driving in X-marked lanes on nationwide highways.

A spokesperson for UK Highways said: “Police have now started enforcing Red X crimes using auto-detection with cameras. This is beyond their current jurisdiction.

“Police forces are responsible for enforcing red X crimes, and it would not be appropriate for us to stress where auto-detection is currently located, but drivers should be aware that all police forces can apply a red X and it is illegal to ignore this basic highway signal.”
