The following are procedures associated with the issue of penalty charges for bus lane infringements.

  • Penalty charge notices must be served within 28 days of detection of the offence on the registered keeper of the vehicle.

  • The penalty charge must be paid by the end of a 28-day period starting from the date of the penalty charge notice. If the penalty is paid within 14 days then only half of the penalty charge will be payable.

  • If the penalty charge is not paid within the 28-day period, then the local authority has the right to increase the penalty charge by 50%.
