§ Lord Hives
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What steps they can take to prevent problems arising in Central London from the use of bus and taxi lanes by other vehicles.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Transport (Lord Brabazon of Tara)
Unauthorised vehicles enter bus lanes as a result of inadequate signing, deliberate misuse, and lack of understanding on the part of drivers. The Government are looking into these issues with a view to offering improved advice on design and signing of bus lanes. This should assist the police with their enforcement duties.
