Dartford Crossing: Drivers unable to pay charge resulting in unfair fines

Jon Cruddas MP was recently contacted by many concerned constituents in regard to problems with their Dart Charge accounts for the Dartford Thames Crossing.

The organisation responsible for operating the accounts changed in late July with very little notification. Account holders were asked to revalidate their accounts to avoid being fined for non-payment.

Jon Cruddas’s constituents have been attempting to comply but have been unable to get through to the organisation due to their system being down. As a result, a number of motorists with accounts may receive fines.

Jon has written to the Minister for Transport, Richard Holden, to ask for his direct intervention in the matter. Jon will ensure his constituents are updated along the way.
