Clampdown on drivers wrongly using park-and-ride lane
7:00am Wednesday 6th March 2013 in News
DRIVERS illegally using the park-and-ride lane were fined as a police clampdown was launched on Botley Road.
Officers spent an hour-and-a-half near the turning for the Seacourt park-and-ride facility, spotting drivers who used the park-and-ride lane and then merged with non-bus-lane traffic.
Spokesman Rhianne Pope said: “They were there from 8am to 9.30am. They gave out a lot of advice and issued 15 fixed penalty notices.”
The 15 drivers will now have to pay £30 fines.
