To all drivers that have been blocking and using the bus lanes … you have been warned! Violating bus lane rules results in a $115 – $150 fine. Starting on Tuesday February 20, 2018 the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin issuing bus lane camera violations along the Q52/Q53 Woodhaven-Cross Bay Boulevard Select Bus Service (SBS) route in Queens.
“Each corridor has signage indicating the hours that the bus lanes are operable, and that the lanes are camera enforced. DOT issues warnings to motorists for at least 60 days prior, per state law, when the cameras are first operated to ensure that drivers are informed about the program. Since violations are issued against the vehicle, not the driver, points are not deducted from motorists’ licenses.
If your vehicle is filmed driving, parking, or standing in a bus lane, you will be sent a Notice of Liability (NOL) about 30 days after the violation. If you want to fight it, you must do so within 30 days of the NOL’s date or face possible penalties. You can view your bus lane camera violation video online if you have the NOL number and the PIN provided on the NOL.”
