Bus Lane Bonanza

The BBC writes on the astonishing news that cameras monitoring bus lanes are generating income from fines for car drivers. I haven't read the Mail's take on the story as it's probably frothing at the mouth.In an attempt to stir up a little light controversy the BBC offer us this quotation:
Motoring organisation, the RAC, said the cameras had become a "cash bonanza" for local authorities.
Well, good. Every little helps in these cash-strapped times. And, given it's Lent, we should remember that bus lane cameras are a charge on selfishness, impatience and stupidity. And that is an income stream that never dries up, but flows even as the waters from Mount Hermon.
