Drivers warned of tickets at Lausanne train station
Drivers dropping off passengers at Lausanne train station are being warned not to park close to the station or use taxi lanes, no matter how briefly, or they are likely to face a fine.
Since the beginning of the month, the private security guards employed by Swiss Federal Railways, have been authorized to report errant cars.
The guards will simply note the licence plate and the driver will get a fine in the post.
Some are complaining the guards are being over zealous and have complained to the canton. But the canton says the train station, and roads around it, fall under federal jurisdiction.
