If you're caught driving in a bus lane when you shouldn't be you could get a penalty. Bus lanes are in operation all the time, except if they have a sign that shows the times when you can't drive in them.
The kind of penalties you can get are:
- bus lane Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow from the councils in these cities
- Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN) anywhere in Scotland where there are bus lanes from the police
