    A question about cctv camera enforcement smart car 26th Mar 18 at 9:01 PM
    Does anyone know if these can record whilst moving or whether they have to be stationary?
    Today i turned the wrong way out of a car park. I only realised once driving in it that i had turned into a bus lane/bus only road. There was only the one lane so i couldn't move out of it and nowhere to turn so didnt have much choice. In just typical fashion a car marked "parking enforcement" drove past me the other way (its not bus only in the other direction) so I'm wondering if a ticket is heading my way. I was in the bus lane so i am at fault, but will still be really annoyed if i get a ticket coz it was a genuine mistake! Having said that i dont know if these cars do bus lanes as well or just parking. Its bolton area if that makes a difference.
    Thanks for any responses.

    SMART do not use CCTV , they use ANPR cameras on the entrance/exit that take still pictures to record the number plate and the time of entry and exit

    if there was a council run bus lane then they may have recorded the error so keep an eye on your postbox

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Yes they can. If you get a Council PCN, go to pepipoo (no Hotmail emails there):

    Why, why, why has this thread, which is almost two years old, been resurrected with a random, lacking-in-detail query?

    We have no idea whether 'they was recording you'. Who are 'they'?
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask.
