LETTER: Prosecute lorry drivers who flout weight limits

To help the traffic problem in Alfriston, what about the amazingly innovative solution of prosecuting drivers who ignore the weight limits? Some may have been misled by sat nav, but in that case they should get better sat nav, not ignore the misery they cause other people.

Of course after the cuts, Sussex Police seems to consist of two chaps and a dog. But Alfriston Parish Council could surely find the money for a number-recognition camera at each end of the village if “someone” would authorise that. And there’s a wealth of retired expertise in Alfriston that could help with the clerical work. The new situation that local government finds itself in, operating on a shoestring, needs some common-sense answers, thinking outside the bureaucratic box that no longer delivers solutions for villagers
