POLICE in Wrexham are warning motorists driving through the town centre to follow the road regulations or expect to be pulled up by the long arm of the law.

Community Beat Manager John Clarke said complaints had been made by businesses in the Charles Street and Yorke Street area of the town that motorists were flouting access restrictions on a regular basis.

He said: “We are going to be taking action on this issue with fixed penalty notices for people who break the regulations.”

PC Clarke said the move was being supported by Wrexham Council.

Last month the Leader reported that drivers were causing concerns for people around Charles Street and Yorke Street. Among them was Stephanie Booth, owner of the Wynnstay Arms.

Mrs Booth said she had nearly been run over by a quad bike riding around the streets. She said traffic regulations were being ignored by a large number of road
users.

In November last year police officers in Wrexham carried out an operation to enforce road restrictions along Duke Street near the bus station.

The road, between Regent Street and Lord Street, was being used as a shortcut by drivers, despite signs clearly stating it could only be used by taxis, buses and for loading purposes.
