Addison Lee cabs barred from driving in bus lanes

Addison Lee cabs banned from bus lanes

The High Court has barred a minicab firm from driving in London's bus lanes.

Following a ruling from the High Court today, Addison Lee is prevented from instructing or encouraging its drivers to drive in bus lanes and must remove the statement on its website instructing drivers to do so.

Ten days ago, Addison Lee's boss, John Griffin, told his drivers to use the lanes and that he would pay their fines.

Transport for London challenged his order, and the court has granted them an interim injunction, ahead of a judicial review.
