It's probably too late - but beware of the Bus Lane traps in Newcastle.
The city is now notorious for them. They appear when you don't expect
them, and they are Bus Only for some very unusual hours. I believe some
are even 24/7.
When you say they "appear when you don't expect them" do they ever turn
up suddenly in roads that don't have bus routes, or in one's own drive?
I don't think it's quite as bad as that, but you can certainly turn a
corner and find yourself entering a bus lane with minimal notice.
And it's not just in the city centre. The tentacles spread out into the
extremities of the city.
