Police to fine Lewes Road cycle lane parking!

Sussex Police has been given
authority to issue non-endorsable £30 tickets to vehicles parked
in advisory cycle lanes for the offence of ‘Causing an
unnecessary obstruction.’ According to a Police spokesperson
"this is an offence that the issuing officer needs to see first
hand."

The Police are currently in
the process of speaking to businesses in the Lewes Road area and
will be fixing information boards to lamp posts. They will then
start
patrolling the Lewes Road area and taking positive action
against cars found parked in these lanes.

Bricycles has campaigned for
more than 10 years to stop cars parking in the Lewes Road cycle
lanes, particularly the Coombe Terrace and Pelham Terrace
sections. We hope that at long last the Police are going to take
some real action to stop this thoughtless and dangerous
practice.
