Letter: Reader condemns drivers who flout the rules

King Street road sign

King Street road sign


There should be a larger road sign telling drivers there is no access along King Street (Clark’s shoe shop corner) and into Regent Street in Yarmouth.

Workmen were busy trying to patch a hole at the junction and in the space of 10 minutes I saw eight normal cars driven down the road, which is only supposed to be for buses and taxis. The eight cars were all driven by men.

Why are these rules being flouted? Is the sign too small to see, although I expect the drivers of the cars were locals who are all aware of the restriction?

Please put a very large sign which clearly says “No Access except for buses/taxis”. As a law-abiding motorist I would never dream of driving down there.
