Make bus lanes easier to negotiate

THE city fathers of Glasgow are to be congratulated in their efforts to improve traffic flow by having dedicated bus and taxi lanes.

If these can only function when enforced by traffic cameras then so be it ("£3.8m in bus lane fines for drivers in Glasgow", The Herald, January 14).

I only wish that the road signage could be made more understandable for those of us who do not use these forms of transport. Twice in the recent past, having studied the commendably clear relevant internet advice, I have driven east along Argyle Street to drop off a luggage-laden prospective train passenger at Central Station.

On both occasions I found the signs very confusing even with very little traffic and plenty of time to survey all the options. There is no advice for other traffic, no advice as to where Central Station is actually located, and no advice about the drop-off points.

Contrast this with the very helpful signs generally to be found near and at most airports. Why the difference?

Bill Naismith,

Conic Way,
