- On November 2009 I was caught on camera for being in a bus lane.
- 1 Week later I paid the reduced fine even though I had been 'caught out' (tricked) by ambiguous and unclear signage.
- A few months later I read in my local paper that many others caught out in the same bus lane appealed against the penalty and were exonerated. My local paper and the local law society were calling for my Council to 'do the right thing' and refund the 1000+ motorists who like me were tricked by the poor signage, but the Council were adamant that they were not to refund anyone, but sit on this 'cash cow'.
- After threatening to take the Council to the Small claims Court I have now filed an application to sue the council for the cost of the fine plus interest and incidental expenses.
- Watch this space;)
If it moves; sue it!
