Cyclists could be hit with tickets for not obeying Salisbury one-way system

POLICE stopped cyclists failing to obey a one-way system in Salisbury – and warned they could start issuing tickets.

New traffic rules are in place in Fisherton Street as roadworks continue in the area.

Among the measures is a one-way system put in place for traffic in the direction of the city centre.

However, Wiltshire Police said cyclists – both delivery riders and the general public – are still travelling “against the one-way system”.

“This is incredibly dangerous,” a spokesperson said.

As a result, on Thursday (November 30), officers visited Fisherton Street and “almost instantly” stopped a commuter cycling the wrong way.

“If this issue continues, fixed penalty notes will be given out to prevent this practice,” the spokesperson added.

“Cyclists can use Crane Bridge Road; this only adding less than a minute to leave the city.”
