Hertfordshire Council must refund £1.3m in bus lane fines after illegally placed restrictions.

The Traffic Penalty Tribunal has stated that the bus lane enforcement sign on Moor End Road in Hemel Hempstead was unclear and illegally placed.

More than 35, 000 drivers have been issued with a penalty notice and all that have paid are set to get a refund.

The council will now suspend the bus lane enforcement on this road and contact all drivers that have received a ticket.

The council are not obliged to refund those that have paid, but apologises to all drivers that have been issued with a penalty notice and states anyone that hasn’t yet paid does not have to and they will contact those that have in due course.
