Dangerous driving won’t be tolerated, say Kent Police
Kent Police have warned drivers not to break road cordons during the Paralympic Games after a driver was pulled up at a test event this week.
The driver of a Volkswagen Golf GTI has been reported for dangerous driving after breaking a rode cordon at Brands Hatch on Tuesday.
The motorist was found be driving on a closed section of road during the road cycling test event at the Kent track near West Kingsdown.
Kent Police have pledged to deal strongly with those ignoring road closures, with a number or routes around Brands Hatch likely to be affected by the road cycling Paralympic events between September 5 and 8.
Acting Inspector Gary Easton said: “The road closures were put in place for the safety of the cyclists and motorists travelling in the area.
“It is an offence to drive on a road which is closed and fortunately no one was hurt from this incident.”
