Someone will be hurt or killed if road signs are ignored say PSNI

SOMEONE will be seriously hurt or killed if motorists continue to ignore road signs in Craigavon, according to the PSNI.

Brownlow Neighbourhood Policing Team have reminded motorists to obey all roads signs and traffic directions.

It comes after complaints about ‘blatant disregard of road signs’ at the filling station at Highfield.

Police have received a number of reports of motorists ignoring the No Entry signs and No Right Turn signs and driving against the designated flow of traffic on exiting the filling station.

Constable McKeown, Brownlow NPT, said: “If motorists continue to ignore these signs it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt or killed. The road signage and markings are clearly visible and all motorists should turn left towards Central Way on exiting the filling station.

“We will be conducting patrols in the area and those who decide to take a chance and ignore the signs face an endorseable fixed penalty notice (£60 fine and three penalty points on their licence) and the prospect of being reported for driving without due care and attention.

“Please consider the safety of all road users and adhere to the road signs.”
