Did you know that we use closed circuit cameras to enforce bus lanes? There are ten sites where cameras will be located and you may have already seen some new signs around the city.
Bus lane cameras improve bus journey times and ensure more reliable services. The misuse of bus lanes delay buses and frustrate sensible motorists. The aim is to increase the number of people using public transport while helping to reduce pollution and congestion.
Bus Gate Cameras
On 3 December 2012 cameras at The Jewel and Prestonfield bus gates became operational. Bus gates are short sections of the road that only buses, taxis and cyclists (plus emergency service vehicles) can use. They promote the use of public transport whilst reducing through traffic in residential areas.
If you drive in a bus lane or through a bus gate, you risk a £60 fine from the Police or the Council. Income from fines will initially cover the set up costs of the scheme. Any surplus income will go toward supporting local transport improvements.
