On Monday (31 October) the new bus lanes and cameras come into force in Fishergate in what Lancashire County Council say will cut the congestion.
More than a quarter of drivers leaving the railway station have been flaunting the no right turn rule from Butler Street into Fishergte.
They now face a £60 fine as the section from Fishergate coming up through by the railway station will be bus and taxis only – so turning right will trigger the camera and a £60 fine.
The stretch of Fishergate between Mount Street and Corporation Street is also off limits to motorists from 11am to 6pm each day.

Shoppers leaving St George’s Shopping Centre car park will now be able to drive down Chapel Street and escape the city via Avenham rather than getting gridlocked in Fishergate. Some shoppers have reported it takes TWO HOURS to escape the car park during busy shopping weekends.
