POLICE PULLED OVER 66 drivers for contravening ‘no through road’ regulations in Cliffe High Street in Lewes.

The day of action was launched on Thursday last week, March 1.

Neighbourhood police officers pulled over the drivers for driving into or through the pedestrian area without a legal cause.

They were shown photos of the signs through which they had driven, giving clear advice about restricted vehicle access.

The offending drivers were advised that a repeat offence would result in a fixed penalty notice being issued.

Signs are clearly displayed at each end of the pedestrian zone informing drivers that no vehicle access, other than for blue badge holders and for loading, is permitted.

General use as a through road is not permitted.

Chief Inspector Jason Tingley, Lewes District police commander, said: “The response from the public was overwhelmingly positive with most being fully supportive of our actions. These actions will continue with assistance from our partner agencies until the matter can be successfully resolved.”
