£5000 fines for VIP road lanes

Proposed Olympic VIP lanes will let ministers, athletes and corporate sponsors drive around London jam-free in 2012. But motorists who steer into the restricted routes could be hit with astronomical £5,000 fines, according to proposals put forward in the latest version of the London Olympics Bill.

The lanes, which will link venues across the city, are expected to operate from 6am-12midnight, and will be policed by cameras and enforcement officers. According to the Bill, which recently passed its committee stage in the House of Commons, prohibited drivers who enter the lanes or infringe the new Olympic Route Network could face the hefty penalty.
