Why is it that people still drive down here as a thoroughfare when it is meant to be access only/pedestrianised?
(Is this antagonistic and local enough to be doing the forum right yet?)

As long as they're going nice and slow I'm not fussed. It's a bit odd having a car park where your choices are a circular route through town or a no through road.

@ greek, well played sir. The peace process on this forum has begun right here, right now. You are the appeaser!
As for this local issue you speak of....I personally think this mentality and antisocial behaviour started happening on June 24th 2016

If the one way direction was reversed, it would get rid of most of the traffic as it wouldn't be a short cut any more.

The other day I was shouted at by a driver who came straight through Cliffe High St without loading/ visiting Argos etc; I was biking slowly and legally up the road. Drivers just don't see the signs at the entrance.

Really Wanderer? It is right turn only because the road is one way in that direction. If it changes direction then it would be left turn only! Quite simple really.

I always drive down there and I hate the people who walk slowly pretending they can't hear the car or pathetically trying to make a point. I then bump it up on the curb outside intersport much to the disgust of many pedestrians and guess what - I DONT CARE

Yes Penguin. Reversing the direction of travel has been suggested to ESCC and not accepted although they couldn't come up with any sensible reason why not. Reversing the flow would almost immediately put a stop to Cliffe High Street being used as a rat run through Town. A week long survey took place last year. Several hundred vehicles drive straight through each day and many people park, bet, eat and shop using Cliffe High Street as handy free parking.

You can drive along Cliffe High St if you are a disabled driver with a Blue Badge.

Why have a rule which no one wants to enforce. I have spoken to the plastic police and they say it's nothing to do with them. I spoke to a policewomen last summer and she said it's not a priority issue for them. So why have the restriction. I believe the whole of cliffs should be pedestrian only between 10am and 4pm every day. This would be good for all. No bikes either during this period as they generally disregard pedestrians.

No one cares about the shops in the Cliffe high street getting deliveries then ? Such restrictive time limited would be impossible. The new trend is mixed use, pedestrians and vehicles, something the fogeys in Lewes seem hard to grasp. I suppose personal awareness talents has been lost.

It is irksome that the pavement all along Cliffe High St becomes a car park every Sunday. And there always seems to be a vehicle parked across the lowered pavement opposite the pathway by Goldfinch (the Tesco path), which is there for wheelchair and buggy users.

Why is it that Argos car park is always full even if they only have one or two customers. Cars that should not be there at all.
