Cape Town Traffic Services have taken a no-nonsense approach regarding enforcement of the BMT lane. Although there are cameras strategically installed along the N2, it is essential, but not always possible, that visible policing is also carried out.

“Yesterday a total of 348 fines were issued of which a 184 were issued for disregarding the BMT lane itself,” said spokesperson for Cape Town Traffic Services Merle Lourens.

People need to acknowledge the fact that the BMT lane is there for public transport and not for normal motorists as it is there for public commuters to get into the city centre faster and for them to get to work on time.

“Our officers will be out there in full force and we will be doing this on a daily bases, not necessarily on the exact same spot but we will be continuing these types of operations,” said Lourens
