There really is no excuse for drivers to be caught out by one of the city's bus gate enforcement cameras.

Today represents a milestone birthday for a sign in Grove Road, as noticed by reader Trevor Lewis, from Trowse.

The 'temporary' sign warning drivers that camera enforcement would start on March 11, 2019, is still in place today - five years later. 

When contacted by this newspaper about the future of the sign, Norfolk County Council declined to comment.

As previously reported, the Brazen Gate camera, near the Sainsbury's supermarket in Queens Road, was responsible for snaring 4,021 drivers last year - despite only operating for two hours from 7.30am until 9.30am on weekdays.

The drivers caught there paid the county council £108,349 of the total £250,897 which was racked up in fines between October 2022 and October 2023.

However, fewer drivers were snapped going through that bus gate than the previous year, when 6,043 motorists fell foul of the camera.
