We installed cameras on bus lanes across the city in October 2015 – drivers who illegally use the lanes will risk being caught on camera.
Bus lanes should only be used by buses, cyclists, hackney cabs and emergency services and are there to make buses quicker and reduce journey times.
The police can already prosecute people who illegally use bus lanes but are unable to monitor bus lanes all the time. The new cameras can operate 24 /7 and will make it much easier to identify vehicles and provide evidence of the offence.
The advice is simple, observe the bus lane restriction and avoid the possibility of being issued with a £60 penalty charge notice.
This is not a profit-making exercise but a way of improving sustainable travel around the city. Any money will be reinvested to make improvements to roads and transport in the city.
