Motorists warned to stop using road

MOTORISTS who continue to use Pearce Road in Ipswich other than for access purposes, are being warned that from Monday they will face being issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

MOTORISTS who continue to use Pearce Road in Ipswich other than for access purposes, are being warned that from Monday they will face being issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

The road was made access only in January, 2005, by Ipswich Borough Council. But police said drivers were still using the road, which is located off Orwell Road, as a cut-through to avoid the traffic lights on Foxhall Road.

Officers have been addressing the problem by issuing warnings to motorists from October 20 and have issued 142 warnings in total to motorists so far.

However, from Monday, officers will be issuing Fixed Penalty Notices (tickets) which carry a £30 fine that are non-endorsable (no points on driving licence) to any drivers who continue to use the road as a cut through.
