Charmouth motorists warned over bad driving

Police also order vehicle exhausts to be made less noisy

POLICE issued two motorists with Section 59 warnings for “bad driving” at Charmouth on Saturday, following a complaint by a village resident.

Both vehicles involved also had excessively noisy exhaust systems, which are now in the process of being changed before being allowed back on the road.

A Section 59 warning lasts a year, and if any further complaint is received within that period the vehicle can be seized by police.
