FOI Request - Bus Lanes
I am seeking information under the Freedom of Information Act relating to the number and value of fixed penalty notices (FPNs) issued to motorists for driving in bus lanes.
Can you please tell me:
1) The number of FPNs issued between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 for bus lane offences (note: if information is not available for the last calendar year, please provide data for the latest available full 12-month period). In addition, please provide comparable information for the previous four years (2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010) for which data is available.
2) If you have any 24-hour bus lanes in operation in your area, can you tell me how many penalties were issued overnight (between the hours of 7pm and 7am) in the last calendar year.
3) The total income from FPNs issued by the local authority for bus lane offences in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 (again, if this information is not available by calendar year, please provide data for the latest available 12-month periods).
Note: If your local authority chooses not to enforce bus lanes with FPNs do let me know. Alternatively, if lanes are policed in this way but your authority is not the enforcement agency, can you please tell me who is.
This information is not held and is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002
