Driving offences around Corn Street

Over the past few months we have seen an increase in driving offences in the Corn Street, Clare Street and Small Street areas in Bristol City Centre. By engaging with local businesses located in the area, the feedback we received was that mainly delivery drivers operating mopeds were ignoring traffic signs and contravening local traffic orders. Over the next few months you will see us in and around the location completing traffic operations to deter further offences taking place.
