Birmingham Bus Lane Fury – Thousands of motorists have been caught out by a new road layout in Priory Queensway Birmingham.
After a short distance the road turns into a bus lane and normal traffic must do a U turn. Motorists just don’t understand the restriction and simply continue down the road. It is reported that one motorist taking her child to the Birmingham children’s hospital has received 7 penalty charge notices.
We say that the council should immediately suspend enforcement and cancel the bus lane tickets issued. The signage does not look clear to us and we can’t see that signs warning of CCTV enforcement are in situ.
The fines are £60 each reduced to £30 if paid without fuss within 15 days.
