Drivers risk thousands in fines for 'common mistake' amid driving law changes

Date:


According to the Government, the increase in fines is supposed to bring them in line with the amount drivers pay for “high-level parking offences”.

Baroness Vere of Norbiton, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Transport, said: “We have used this opportunity to repeal the bus lane enforcement regime, in place since 2005 under the Transport Act 2000, to create a single enforcement regime under the 2004 Act; that includes bus lane enforcement.”

She continued: “As moving traffic and bus lane contraventions are of a type, we are increasing bus lane penalties by £10 to align with contraventions of moving traffic and higher-level parking contraventions —for example, parking in a disabled bay.”

AA president Edmund King disagreed saying: “Bus lane fines are set to go up by more than twice the rate of already rampant UK inflation.
