shk292: On a related subject, has anyone appealed against a parking penalty at Albany Park & Ride.  Arrived there at 0806 last week and due to lack of spaces, parked on a berm/verge area covered by low-lying scrub.  Received a $40 ticket for that.  No signs visible anywhere in the car park saying I shouldn't park there, and not causing an obstruction.  Pay up or appeal??

It's like they make these car parks too small on purpose. On one hand, the council is all about taking public transport, then they build these park and rides too small. And now they can go around ticketing offenders who tired to use public transport.
The park and ride at Silverdale, just completed last year is already at capacity with some cars parking also at the rugby/tennis club across the road. I've seen some cars parking near the verge and parts of the park and ride which aren't marked for parking, I don't know if they've started issuing tickets there or not yet. I did see a warden issuing a ticket along Whangaparaoa road where somebody had parked a car for sale on the grass verge. It seems the Council are stepping up their enforcement activity.

its because they dont believe it will be as popular as they end up being + budget constraints mean they cant make it bigger/hold more

crock if you ask me, its cheaper to build today than it is to build in a year or 2's time

Sorry to bring up an old topic, but I thought the rule was that you can't enter the buslane further than 50m from the intersection. This is why the bus lane markings on the road end 50m from the intersection in the instance you've given. Often, the bus lane continues through the intersection and I suspect this is the case here too? I don't think you're allowed to drive in the bus lane for an additional 50m from the "end" of the bus lane as marked, can you? In other words, they've already done the hard work for you and shown you on the road where you can enter. I had a quick look on Google maps and looks like the end of the bus lane/bus stop coincides with the start of the left lane and they are all 50m from the intersection.

I don't think you got your ticket for the fact that your wheel didn't leave the bus lane but more for the fact that you entered the bus lane closer than 50m from the intersection (the third picture clearly shows you in the bus lane/bus stop with the end of the bus lane visible next to you).

Do I have the rule wrong?
