I was interested in the article about bus lane cheats (News, May 13) and observed the following today:
The Hewletts Rd signs record $150 fines – not $200.
The only bus using the bus lane was "Not in service". Shouldn't it have been using the public lanes?
The dotted line for traffic from Mount Maunganui turning into Jean Batten Drive is only of about seven car lengths.
On several occasions, the traffic wishing to turn in the bus lane exceeded that number.
This means anyone legally wishing to turn left would have to wait until the bus lane is clear
