Victor Hankin was given a penalty notice after being filmed by a mobile traffic enforcement vehicle at a bus stop in Bradford after stopping for a red light.
Bradford Council apologised and cancelled the ticket after Mr Hankin appealed against the decision, according to the BBC.
‘I told them that I would be removing the appeal and I’d be seeing them in court and I wanted the camera operative in the court with me,’ he explained.
‘At that point they overturned everything, apologised and the attitude couldn’t have been more helpful and totally the opposite.’
Bradford Council said: ‘All images are checked before a Penalty Charge Notice is issued. In this case a mistake was made.
‘When we find out that we have issued a penalty notice in error we cancel it and refund as appropriate.’
