Motorists who flout the rule of the road have indeed been “busted”, but it was disappointing that, in stark contrast to your “dozy parkers” campaign, The Star could not bring itself to print a single word of criticism of those private car drivers justly fined for ignoring bus lanes and gates. They are not the victims: public transport users and more patient drivers are.
The outcry over the botched bus changes shows just how much reliable public transport matters, and at the moment it needs all the help it can get.
Fines collected on our behalf by the council and spent to the public benefit are little comfort, but a necessity until the inconsiderate minority gets the message and removes the need for them.
