No.
This issue has been considered in a case relating to the congestion charge and it has been decided that the fixed penalty system does not fall within the Bill of Rights because it does always contain the right to appeal and have your challenge heard by a competent court.
The case is here
De Crittenden -v- NPAS [2006] EWCA Civ 1786
