Full Version: The law and defences for bus lane tickets

I have just received a FPN for driving in a bus lane within the London Borough of Lambeth (not too sure I did but that's another story)

Unfortunately I am more experienced with the speeding side of things and have absolutely no idea on defences/things to look out for in fighting a FPN. Are there time frames the council/TFL should adhere to? Do these FPNs ever time out (like speeding cases)?

I have searched through this forum and found conflicting arguments/defences, so I'm really none the wiser. I looked through the Read This First too, but that left me more confused. Does anyone know of an up to date comprehensive idiots guide thread/web page to fight these (and what mistakes on the ticket to look out for)?

Thanks for your time

There is some discussion of a PCN for a Bus lane contravention here.
You can pretty much ignore my contribution on it.
