The scheme will mean drivers parking at bus stops, on pedestrian crossings, or in the safety zones outside schools will receive a higher penalty than those overstaying at a parking meter.
This new system will mean that motorists committing some parking contraventions will receive a£20 lower penalty then they currently do.
London Councils transport and environment committee chair Daniel Moylan said:
'Ensuring the right balance is struck between being firm and being fair has always been a challenge, but I believe this new two-tier scheme helps us to meet both of these objectives.'
Motorists wrongly using bus lanes or committing moving traffic contraventions - including entering a box junction when their exits are blocked and going through a no entry sign - will receive a£120 penalty from 1 July.
Lorry company operators and drivers breaking the London Lorry Control Scheme will also receive£550 and£120 penalties respectively from 1 July.
