Bus lane enforcement cameras on Exeter Street

The Plymouth Herald is running a story today about bus lane enforcement on Exeter Street, suggesting we have recently installed ‘a clutch of cameras’ near the entrance to the Friary Retail Park and that more ‘are being put up to catch bus lane cheats’.

To clarify, there are two cameras on the lighting column pictured – one of which has been there for some time. The other is a different type of camera we are trialling for a few weeks, purely for comparison purposes.

Camera enforcement has been a very effective deterrent against bus lane misuse in Plymouth and is supported by the police and local bus companies, who say it has made a big difference in terms of improving road safety and reducing congestion.
