72722340 – new york, usa, november 2016: bus lane in new york near central park
The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) began 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.
Since violations are issued against the vehicle, not the driver, points are not deducted from motorists’ licenses. Camera enforcement is also already in effect for the following routes:
- Bx12, along the Fordham Road SBS corridor
- M15, along the First Avenue and Second Avenue SBS corridors
- M34, along the 34th Street SBS corridor
- M60, along the 125th Street SBS corridor
- B44, along the Nostrand Avenue and Rogers Avenue SBS corridor
- S79, along the Hylan Boulevard-Richmond Avenue SBS corridor
- Q44, along the Main Street-Sutphin Boulevard SBS corridor
- Bx41, along the Webster Avenue SBS Corridor
- B46, along Utica Avenue, Broadway and Malcolm X Boulevard
- M23, along the 23rd Street SBS corridor
- Bx6, along 161st and 163rd Streets in the South Bronx
The State authorization allows the expansion of the City’s bus lane camera program to 16 total routes. Additional camera-enforced routes will be added over time. DOT also works with the NYPD to enforce bus lanes citywide through traditional methods.
