I have just got home from Brands GP to find a nice brown envelope from TFL on my doorstep. It would appear that I have been fined for riding in the bus lane northbound along Brixton Road between Brixton and Kennington. Now as far as I’m aware that is part of the trial scheme and I have been riding along there for the past 3 years. Have I just been lucky for 3 years or have they got this one wrong. I’m not at work this week so I’m unable to check the signs, so can someone confirm whether or not, the bus lane along that stretch of road is available to motorcyclists along the entire length. I’m really pi55ed off with this, and it has ruined my day.
I commute down the A23 through Brixton and Kennington and as far as I was aware bikes are only able to use the bus lane up to the traffic lights where the A23 crosses Camberwell New Road and the A3. Once you have joined Kennington Park Road and then turn left back onto the A23 then bus lanes are out of bounds again.
