THREE motorists were fined for using an access-only road as a short cut.
Officers in Hipperholme were on patrol on the junction of Brookville/George Street and Barfield Road.
This followed residents’ complaints that drivers were using the roads as a cut through.
Three drivers were handed £60 fixed penalty notices.
Other motorists were spoken to – and found to have a genuine reason for using the road.
Police warn further checks will be made over the next few weeks.
