16,000 of you pay out £1m in bus lane fines
FINES totalling more than £1million have been issued to motorists by Aberdeen City Council in the first six months of bus lane enforcement.
Figures released yesterday revealed that drivers have been hit with 16,801 penalty notices from late March up to the end of September.
The charge for flouting the law in the car-free zones is £60, which means the potential cost to drivers breaks down to about £168,000 a month or £5,600 a day.
