Bus lane fine


Smurf

Recommended Posts

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

It's those tossers who ride two abreast and about twenty long that slow the traffic up that twist my melon. Grrrrrrr

I know exactly who you mean. Middle aged blokes that have had desk jobs all their lives, suddenly feel it's acceptable to squeeze themselves into overpriced lycra, sitting on bikes that are worth more then my van.

And they all wear 'cool' shades when they ride :laugh: twonkers. Cyclists have started using their lights in the daylight round here I've noticed. Ooh, look at me with my flashing lights and shades :D fannys, the lot of em!

Don't get me started on the lights they have. Twunts are riding around with super high powered cree lights that are more powerful then most peoples headlight, only they're not considerate enough to tilt them to the ground a bit. Last week I treated one of them to my full beams the whole way down the road as a little hint. :D

I was just wondering how long smurfy has to work to pay the fine?

 

tell them you were too pissed and didn't see the sign...the trouble is they have you by the short and curlies cause if you pay up straight away it saves you money and theres no hassle...

 

in Liverpool they are shutting them down...about time....as for cyclists...:swear:

The majority of bus lanes in Liverpool are to be scrapped after a year-long trial without them..... Thank God its a nightmare cleaning in the city centre.:thumbsdown: two days a week for me :zzz:

 

An independent review which recommended the retention of only four of the city's 26 bus lanes has been backed by Liverpool City council's cabinet. :)
