Topic - Bus lane fines

climberuk - on 20 Nov 2012
Has anyone managed to appeal a bus lane fine and been successful?

I just got the notice through today. From what I remember I was dropping someone off and there were no parking spaces (you have to cross the bus lane to get to them anyway). So I moved into the bus lane, dropped them off then went straight back into the other lane. About 10s in the bus lane and no buses or taxis to be seen in it. I would have been in the bus lane longer if I had found a space and started parallel parking.

It all seems a bit unfair to say that I was in the bus lane so pay up and that is that given I wasn't an obstruction and was only there for a matter of seconds. Can I appeal on the basis of common sense? If I do so and they reject my appeal then i'll have to pay 60 instead of the reduced 30 for paying within 14 days.
