|UNISON has written to councillors seeking support for our Ambulance bus lanes campaign.
We’re asking councils to extend bus lane exemptions and allow ambulances to use bus lanes in all circumstances.
We are urging councils to:
- Conduct a full review of existing policy for issuing Penalty Charge Notices against ambulances in non-emergency situations.
- Commit to legislative change, extending exemption for bus lane penalties to include ambulance vehicles in all circumstances.
- Stand in solidarity with ambulance crews and encourage neighbouring authorities to support the campaign.
