More bus lane cameras considered in Leicester

A local authority which raised almost half a million pounds by fining motorists who strayed into bus lanes could introduce more cameras to penalise drivers who ignore the warning the signs.

Leicester City Council introduced the cameras on Charles Street and Causeway Lane in July. In four months they caught almost 20,000 drivers bringing in almost £450,000.

Leicester City Council is to decide whether the cameras actually deter people from entering the lanes.

The City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby told ITV news the scheme isn't a licence to print money, he believes it has greatly improved the reliabilty of bus services.
