Andrew Crow made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

The request was successful.

From: Andrew Crow

Dear Wellington City Council,

I am looking for information about the legal status of the "B" bus lights seen at some traffic lights around wellington.

Under the OIA I am requesting a copy of any law that allows a bus to go on a "B" bus light while the main lightis red.

I also request the locations of all such bus lights.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Crow
