Error With Lendal Bridge Cameras Sees York Taxi Company Fined

Lendal Bridge

(Updated 1:49pm 20th September 2013)

An error in the number plate cameras has seen taxis being sent tickets for crossing York's Lendal Bridge.

Taxis are allowed to cross the bridge in the six month trial car ban which is in force between 10.30am and 5pm.

But three cabs from Streamline Taxis have all been sent tickets for a fine of up to £60.

Bob Gilbert from the firm is puzzled.

The city council told Minster FM:

“There was a minor issue that has been easily corrected. We‘ve spoken to Streamline Taxis and they are happy with the outcome and will not be charged.”
