Police in Horsforth stop 14 drivers in a night for driving the wrong way down a one-way street
Officers in northwest Leeds have issued a warning to drivers misusing one-way streets: ‘the markings are clear – there is no excuse’.
Last night, 14 drivers were given tickets for driving the wrong way down Manor Road in Horsforth, while a further vehicle was flagged up as being uninsured and was recovered by officers.
The tongue-in-cheek post to social media by the Leeds Northwest Neighbourhood Policing team stated: “Last night NPT officers attended Manor Road, Horsforth again after we received reports that drivers were still struggling with the signage (as you can see, it is pretty cryptic!) and driving the wrong way down the one-way system.
“You may remember our previous post where around 50 drivers were advised on the (then-recent) change and asked to turn around.
