Customer Question
I have a bus...

I have a bus lane penalty notice. $330 I heard that I am actually allowed in the lane because I wanted to turn left. If I was in the right lane I could've caused an accident. Please help.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state was the citation in? And have you consulted a local attorney?

I live in Sydney. No I have not. You are the first person I have spoken to about the matter.

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

I don't think so. They sent the fine to me yesterday.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No. Not at the moment.

Sorry, I've been charged with a parking offence in NSW (Parking in a bus zone).
