Drivers fined over ‘rat-run’

MORE people have been fined after using a residential street as a “rat-run”.
Drivers have been illegally using Chassen Road in Heaton, to avoid traffic lights, despite police warning that they would be handing out fines.
Last Friday six people were fined £30 for using the road, which followed 12 drivers who were fined on Thursday.
Police, who were there between 3.30pm and 4.30pm, have run several operations in the past few weeks and motorists have been warned not to use the road as a shortcut.
PC Andy McMath said: “Local residents are pleased with the police response.”
Cllr Bob Allen added: “Let's hope it makes a difference.”
