Remove the ambiguity re bank holiday use of bus lanes

41 Comments 24th January 2015

Please end the flexibility that allows local authorities to enforce bus lane restrictions that apply "Monday to Friday" on bank holidays.

(I drove in a bus lane on Bank Holiday Monday solely becuase the restriction only applied Monday to Friday and thus, so far as I was concerned, not on Sundays).

Why does this matter?

The rationale for bus lanes is to speed the flow of buses not to penalise otherwise law abiding citizens.

A bank holiday is, for all other purposes, equivalent to a Sunday and bus timetables reflect this too. Local authorities (eg: Ealing in West London) should not be allowed to penalise motorists simply because the authority has not passed a byelaw confirming that a Bank Holiday should be treated the same as a Sunday for road traffic act purposes.
