A court imposed fine of £5,000 is the maximum allowed under the 2006 London Olympic and Paralympic Games Act. However, the Act also allows for Penalty Charge Notices to be issued in the same way as by TfL and other local authorities, and I expect this to be the way the ORN is enforced other than in exceptional circumstances.

The ODA aims to encourage maximum compliance with the various traffic management measures necessary for the successful running of the Games. The ODA will use widespread publicity and communication ahead of the Games to ensure road users understand the purpose and importance of the ORN.
