Traffic enforcement cameras on Coppergate

Street signs are in place at the entrance to Coppergate to alert motorists to bus lane restrictions.

We enforce the bus lane restrictions on Coppergate using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) traffic cameras, which use car registration details during restricted hours.

We'll issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) to the registered owner of the vehicle if you breach bus lane restrictions.
