LIKE Linda Kinnon, (Evening Times report, Wednesday) I received a fine notice for driving in a bus lane.
My offence was accessing a parking space safely.
I got the notice a month after the incident and had to think really hard to remember why I was there.
I have appealed the fine but after reading your articles I believe I will have to pay the £60 and not the reduced £30.
I have also written to my MSP outlining what I think is an unsafe road layout and the MSP has passed a copy of my letter to the police.
I had driven in this road, outwith the bus lane, and spotted a parking space. Seeing the solid white line I assumed you were not allowed to cross the line, so I did a full circuit around the block, and entered the bus lane to get to the parking bay in a safe manner.
The advice given to Mr Day is dangerous: bus lanes are to allow buses to progress in congested traffic and this one is 24 hours.
At the time I was in the bus lane (6.26pm on a Saturday) there was no congestion and I was not trying to dodge the traffic.

I AM sure I am not the only one who, on watching the opening night flag-waving parade of the competing Olympic countries, came to realise that the most striking, most iconic flag of the lot was the Union flag.
It would be criminal to allow Alex Salmond's plan for independence for Scotland to rip up the most beautiful flag in the world.

I WAS sitting in front of the Olympic rings in George Square, where locals and tourists from many countries were taking photographs.
Then the usual happened - two drunken neds destroyed the display. To inflict even more insult one of them then fell asleep on the metal Olympic rings.
A Slovak couple who had been among those taking pictures asked if this was typical of modern Britain. Sadly, I agreed.
