Fines warning for North Walsham ‘rat-run’ drivers
13:57 15 April 2013
“Rat-run” drivers who ignore access-only signs in an area of North Walsham are being warned they could face a £30 fine.
Officers from the local safer neighbourhood team will be conducting regular high-visibility patrols along Station Road following complaints that drivers are using the road as a short-cut.
Police have received complaints about motorists using the road between Millfield Road and Norwich Road, near the Victory Swim and Fitness Centre, flouting the access only signs.
Drivers, other than local buses, should only use this section of road to access the leisure centre or local houses. Officers said they would be carrying out regular enforcement patrols and handing out fixed-penalty notices to offenders.
