Hi, I have been reading your posts with interest as (horrifically) I received an identical penalty notice on Thursday. I am so put out as I had absolutely no idea I was in a bus lane. I had only used that route once before - about a year ago - to pick up a heavy item from the BHS back entrance (at their suggestion). Clearly things have changed but I did not see a thing suggesting it was a bus lane.

I wondered how you were getting on and whether you had any advice. I am going back to Reading on Thursday to have a good look to see what sinage there is and what I missed.

Do yopu think it is safer to pay and then argue as I am concerned that the fine will increase (although goodness knows when because it doesn't give any firm indication as you mentioned).
