    Default Bus lanes.....

    Just come back after dropping my mrs off at her babysitting job she does on friday nights before i ****** off out to "play"

    An in Worcester there is a a 3 lane road, 2 lanes are normally for cars and the 3rd is a bus lane, now i have to turn off halfway down the road to go to my house, so i kept in the car lane till i was ready to turn....

    Now as i put on indicator i stopped myself from pulling over as there was some little scroat going like a bat out of hell in the bus lane (obligitory black windows,dustbin exhuast,loud soundssystem ect)i presume he wasnt looking as he went past me like i was revering at 70mph!!
    Well he wasnt doing 30mph.

    The question is, can you use the bus lanes after a certain time (no notices to say you cant) so the "in" road effectivl;y become a 2 lane road or am i in the right stying in my lane till i need to turn?

    My reasoning is i always thought you couldnt use the bus lane at all, it is for buses....

    Some bus lanes are peak hour bus lanes. Usually 7.30am - 9.30am & 4.30pm - 6.30pm (ish). And outwith these hours, ordinary vehicles can use them.

    These "peak hours" are normally signposted at start and throughout the length of the bus lane.

    Hope this helps
