And the cycle lanes and pavements?

Manchester councils are planning to crack down on drivers using bus lanes, monitoring them with CCTV and issuing £60 fines. Which is all very good, but what about the double yellow parking, pavement hopping and cycle lane blocking?

As many as seven in 10 drivers using bus lanes in Manchester are believed to be private vehicle users who are breaking the law. Currently the police are the only authority who can hand out tickets, but they do not use CCTV and a lack of resources means patrols do not give priotity to the issue.
