The City of Cape Town and the Western Cape provincial
government transport department have been working on ensuring that the bus
lanes and transport lanes around the city are used only for public transport
Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and
Security JP Smith said one of the key problem areas has been the bus lanes on
the N2 whereby motorists are using the lanes.
Smith said the reinstatement of the cameras
on the N2 will hopefully drive down the level of non-compliance. A large number of motorists are using that
bus lane and we hoping with the cameras motorists who get fines will change
“The fines which previously would only infrequently
be recorded against offenders, will now not be easy to escape as the cameras
will be catching them daily” Smith added.
