    Anyone been fined for using a bus lane?

    Reason why I asked I never use them but last week I took a gamble and got in one early before it ran out to turn left at a mini roundabout. Today I opened my mail and had 3 pics of my van included with a fixed penalty notice of £60. Oops! that will teach me to be a naughty boy:D

    What does peeve me though the local council shut down a park & ride years ago further up the road because they could not afford to keep it going. May I add no other bus lanes are in and around that area apart from that stretch of road. So that short bit of bus lane is no longer required but they sure as hell kept the camera working as generates them loads of dosh.:rolleyes:

    I was caught driving through Reading a few years ago. I'm normally really careful but I didn't know the area and by the time I drove down the road, THEN there was a sign saying bus lane. Thanks! £60 was reduced to £30 because I paid within 2 weeks... :(

    I might say which is true I was looking for a houes number along that road and did not want to cause traffic behind me to build up as was busy because of the fecking bus lane that wasn't being used. Mind you I did undertake one or two cars as they started to que up towards the mini roundabout as you do :D
