There are questions I would like answered: 1 Did the council do it’s research to show that drivers would break the traffic laws, and what are they doing to prevent or at least reduce offenders? I suspect nothing as this is a very lucrative money-making scheme for YCC.
2 Where would the money come from if no motorists break the traffic laws on Lendal Bridge? No prizes for guessing that one, or would they just let the road and highways get worse?
Come on, City of York Council, use your creative skills to get the income from other sources, because in six months, or at least that is what you tell us, the trial on Lendal Bridge will cease.
I won’t holding my breath on that one.

• Fines received by City of York Council for access breaches in Coppergate and Lendal Bridge will be ringfenced for highways maintenance and transport (Press, September 6).
What’s the betting that the highways and transport budget in the future will be reduced by the amount expected to be collected in fines? This will mean the same amount as usual will be spent on highways and transport, but the fines income can be spent on more vanity schemes and pork barrel politics.
