I Hate Bus Lanes - and Sheffield 17:16 - Nov 28 with 1212 viewsSTID2017

Caught on camera accidentally driving for a few seconds in a bus lane.
What a way to treat visitors.
Paid it as not worth appealing as I was caught on cctv.
I'll not give them my custom again !!!

Edit. On Middlewood Road, driving away from Hillsborough..
Anyone going there next time and using that road watch out for the bus lanes !!

Happened to me in Bristol a few years ago. CCTV cameras aren't able to use their discretion or common sense.

I got done for £35 for picking my wife and all her shopping up at the back of M&S in Neath by the Neath Port Talbot Council parking van last week.
I know several people that have been done in the same spot doing the same thing.
We will not be shopping in M&S again and that is not the fault of M&S.
When M&S closes in Neath and Neath becomes more of a ghost town than it is now they need to thank Neath Port Talbot Council.

Bar-stewards are everywhere. Got done for driving in bus lane in Plasmarl 9 0'clock on a Sunday morning, not another vehicle on the road let alone a bus.

Shouldn't complain really as it could have been worse.
I was driving down that road at 70mph at the time !!

They have one in Carmarthenshire as well and quite a few have been done outside M&S in Carmarthen. It’s being sold on the basis of safety etc, but it’s revenue generation. As you say the councils will drive the town centres in to further decline and decimate the High Street.

I got done driving in a bus lane a few years ago in Reading. Never paid it. They doubled the fine. Never paid it. Letters back and fore, and threats. I asked them to prove that it was me driving.
Never heard no more.

Mine was sent to me as person appearing to be the owner / hirer of a 3 metre tall motorhome.
I am going to struggle to hide that in a dark alley if the authorities come looking !!

Got done in Bath 5 years ago, I appealed and ended up paying more.
I stayed away up until earlier this year.

It does. If I got done for speeding or parking illegally I wouldn't feel so aggrieved, but bus lanes appear and
disappear intermittently, so I didn't choose to break the council regulations.

I got done in Bath a couple of weeks ago, stinking wet night and I still have no idea how I ended up in a bus lane and if I had the appetite for it I’d appeal, but I made the early payment of 30 quid to avoid the ballache. Also got done in Cardiff a few months ago in a normal carriageway that suddenly turned in to a bus lane between two junctions and the signs were so high you’d have to be in a double decker to see them.

It was dark and wet when I was driving around Sheffield trying to follow road signs, sat nav etc so clearly didn't notice the bus lane

I read about someone receiving a fine recently for inadvertently driving in a bus lane, on a day when no buses were running (think it was a bank holiday)!

My situation in Bristol was the complete opposite. It was rush hour and I'd been in the inside lane for a while before it became a bus lane and I was indicating and trying to get out of the bus lane and must have been in it for about 30-40 yards before someone let me pull out. Even then there were cars who had been behind me just carried on up the bus lane so I guess they all got caught by the ANPR cameras.

I didn't even know you could get done by CCTV cameras. This thread has probably saved me a future fine. This is why I love Planet Swans.

I got done in a tram lane in Nottingham at 4:45am on the way to a triathlon.

Major lack of common sense.
