There seems to be drivers oblivious to limits, especially in Wansbeck Road, Green Lane and Briardene, not to mention the ‘race track’, AKA Blackthorn Way, the rat-run to Guide Post.

Traffic has also been observed using this route that exceeds the 7.5-tonne limit.

As for parking, it appears any double-line will do, or outside a gym, take-away, newsagent, bus stop or Argos, without fear of getting a ticket. Where are the wardens?
