CAR drivers have been urged to steer clear of a bus lane in Aspley.
A family doctor complained after he was given a £30 fine for driving in the bus lane on Wakefield Road, outside the Glyn Webb DIY store.
But police say the bus lane is clearly marked and signposted and have reminded drivers they must not go in it.
Newsome GP Dr Abdul Hamid was angry when two police officers stopped him in the bus lane at 9.20am on Thursday.
He said he was in the bus lane to turn left on to Somerset Road when he was stopped.
He added: "Other people were being stopped and they were also unaware they were committing an offence. There were no buses in the bus lane at the time."
Arrows on the road near the traffic lights junction with Somerset Road show when it is time to move into the left-hand lane.
But Dr Hamid said: "Moving into the lane then to turn left could be dangerous and cause an obstruction, particularly to buses using the lane."
But Sgt Andy Addy, of the traffic police, said: "The bus lane is clearly marked with a solid white line and is well signposted.
"Vehicles can only move into it where it is marked and safe.
"Bus drivers know this and so watch out for traffic moving into that lane near the traffic lights.
"Cars doing this manoeuvre properly will be looking for buses, not cars - which should not be in that bus lane anyway and are causing a danger by being there."
Sgt Addy said the bus lane was implemented by Kirklees Council as part of Government plans to create safe and free-moving public transport routes.
