A report to the Auckland Transport board last Wednesday says the fines, now $150, should be brought in line with traffic in- fringements of the same mag- nitude. The current fines are the same as for running a red light -- more likely to cause a crash than driving in bus lanes -- and the report says it makes better sense to adjust the bus lane fines. It also recommended first offenders be let off with a warning. Auckland Transport is reviewing bus lanes after public backlash to an explosion in the number of fines issued last year. The report also recom- mends bus lane signs be overhauled across the city to make them the same, with an arrow on the road and a break in the line to show where road users could legally enter a bus lane to turn at an intersection. Also recommended were solid green and white lines to show a bus lane as opposed to the current solid white line alone. The regional differences are challenging and conten- tious with the driving public , the report says. A consistent and clear approach to demarcating these lanes is therefore criti- cal in minimising inadvertent infringement of these lanes. The use of the arrow and broken lines will see uninten- tional infringement signifi- cantly minimised . The new markings would be trialled at four sites and, if successful, would be imple- mented across Auckland in the next three years. Growth in Auckland was inevitable and in about 40 years the population will reach at least two million. To accommodate that, the pass- enger transport network will need to carry at least 200 million passenger trips annu- ally, the report says. There are just over 65 million passenger trips annu- ally. In many cases roads can t be widened and transit and bus lanes will become crucial to accommodate those extra trips.
