    Hi

    I would like to know your advise for below scenario :

    By mistake I ended up taking my car to Princess street ( From Hay Market) which is ONLY for Bus/Taxis/Cycle ?

    It's been 3 weeks , should I be getting penalty letter OR points on my Licence ?

    Any advise ?

    You may possibly receive a fine of sorts, or nobody really notice and your really off the hook

    No not really. My mum had drove past a Bus lane only and received a fine in a matter of hours. A friend of mine received one after a month for driving in Princess Street himself. But there seems to be no consistency

    The bus lane cameras in Cardiff issue a FPN which costs about £30 if you pay up quickly. Not that I know anything about that

    one of my dad's parking fine took 2 years to come through after the car was financially written off they retraced it after we moved
    it was £650-700 as it had just mounted up
