Contravention of the 7.5 tonne weight restriction

Around Lacock Village, Mons Lane, Hither Way, Bowden Hill and Reybridge there is a 7.5 tonne weight restriction on all large vehicles entering this zone. This restriction is in place for the safety of road users & pedestrians and to preserve our historic bridges and buildings.

The Law is clear that ALL vehicles over 7.5 tonne, including tractors with trailers, are prohibited from using the roads in this zone, unless they need to gain access to deliver/collect goods or to work in the fields within this zone. Vehicles over 7.5 tonnes cannot use the zone to drive straight through to other destinations. But this is what is happening. Many vehicles over 7.5 tonnes, including tractors with trailers, are often being seen ignoring the 7.5 tonne restriction.

If you see any large Lorries and agricultural vehicles you believe are contravening the Law then:-
1. Make a note of the vehicle description with distinguishing markings (colour, make of vehicle or logo), registration number, place, date and time

2. Take a few photos on your mobile phone if you can, that may be easier
Report the incident to the police, dial 101 and give the details under
reference number 5418 0052 407 for the safety of us all.  The incident can also be reported by email  force.servicedesk@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk  again using the reference above.
