It’s legal to cycle west along Cliff High St

There are always tensions in this semi-pedestrianised Lewes street, as vehicles delivering etc can drive east along it; but this letter is to let these drivers know that cycles are fully allowed to go west along Cliffe High St. By all means yell at idiots on bikes haring along the street in either direction; but please, don’t shout at cyclists carefully and legally biking west, or drive at them to try to force them off the road (as has happened to me three scary times). The cycle contraflow signs at the ends of the street are unobtrusive, certainly: but they are there and the council confirms they are valid.
