  • Thank you for your report. Apparently the Traffic Team have been asked this question before and have already said the signage requested is not something that can be added here. If the issue is with overweight vehicle unfortunately it cannot progressed via fix my street. The police and the (OCC) Trading Standards Service can enforce weight restriction orders under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Trading Standards have a web page that can be reached via business/ trading-standards/ weight-restriction-enforcement (you may need to copy and paste this address into your search engine if the link is not highlighted). It has details and advice on how to report breaches of weight restrictions in your area. This report is now closed.
