‘A notorious yellow box junction – dubbed ‘The Moneybox’ – has doubled its fines in a month and could rake in its grasping council £1.9m a year, MailOnline can reveal.
The junction in south west London now catches twice as many drivers after the council shut a nearby rat run, forcing all traffic through the yellow grid.
Before the road was shut in October last year 1,330 fines were issued, earning the council £86,450.
But in November 2,452 drivers were caught, generating fines of £159,380.
Over the next year Hammersmith & Fulham Council, which controls the box, are expected to rake in a whopping £1,912,500.
These calculations are based on each motorist paying a £65 fine within 14 days.’
