CAMERAS aimed at cracking down on cars that cause congestion on Britain's roads could be used across the country.
The CCTV, which monitors areas including box junctions, are used by councils to catch motorists causing obstructions or making illegal manoeuvres.
Fines, which cost up to £100 in London, can be handed to drivers for offences including stopping in a box junction and ignoring 'no right turn' and 'no entry' signs.
A Government working party has met for the first time to decide the type of CCTV system to be used across the country, says a report.
Every council in Britain could have the cameras in less than a year, it is said.
Nick Lester, from the Association of London Government, said: "We found that using cameras to enforce minor moving traffic offences has been very successful in improving the traffic flow in London.
"For example, enforcing box junctions seriously for the first time has resulted in between 10% or 20% less congestion."
