Although these chaps are at the north end of Willis Street facing south, no one's looking to see if any cars are heading into the bus lane from behind them.

Perhaps they're in the middle of a project to make up a presentation to WCC, pitching themselves as the right crowd to do traffic enforcement for them?

That's a common sight in Auckland on the T2/3/4 lanes; Capturing evidence of people abusing Bus/Transit lanes.

I just ran the question past the WCC Parking Services Manager. The official response is: Enforcing the bus lane i.e. videoing vehicles using the bus lane illegally.  This is the only moving violation that we enforce.

P5 = Parking 5 minute bay. I think you mean T2 / T3 transit lanes like in Auckland?

In Auckland, usually you can enter the bus lane from 50 metres before the next intersection if you need to turn left. No point putting the camera there....as people are entitled to be in the bus lane.

I was guessing that they were trying to trap drivers, but I can't remember a time that I have actually seen any cars coming from that direction?? Seems like a pointless exercise. Would be interesting how many cars there ticked today.

I've seen the odd car go down there but I would doubt the revenue would cover the cost.

 

Maybe they should be checking the speed of the buses too... supposed to be 30km/h, usually isn't. I suspect you would need a more covert camera though, and the bus drivers will be able to see those fluro vests pretty easily.

Linuxluver: ... In Auckland, ... 
This is the road code, surely it should apply in all of NZ, not just Auckland?

 

 

 

Linuxluver: ... usually you can enter the bus lane from 50 metres before the next intersection if you need to turn left. No point putting the camera there....as people are entitled to be in the bus lane. 
For the last 50 metres. That is the important part. Many drivers user more than the last 50 metres. innocent

Suspect like AKL it falls under use of special lane, where they outline $150 fee for doing so. https://at.govt.nz/driving-parking/parking-rules/types-of-infringements/
