For reasons of child safety and congestion management, parking restrictions near schools, on red routes, in bus lanes, and at bus stand clearways are exempt from this ban. As part of its work to improve the safety of cycling, the Government intends to introduce another exemption that will enable the use of approved camera devices for enforcing parking restrictions in mandatory cycle lanes.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has no current plans to change the GB domestic drivers’ hours legislation applicable to drivers of local bus services. The existing legislation is both important and appropriate in ensuring the safety of drivers and others on the road. However, any further restrictions could risk imposing unreasonable burdens on industry, particularly as fatal accidents involving bus or coaches have been falling over time, from 120 in 2007 to 55 in 2017. It is worth noting that reported involvement in a fatal accident does not necessarily indicate fault or causation.</p> more like this
