24 hour bike ban on Devon street, but only 12 hour ban for cars

A town in Devon has implemented a 24 hour bike ban on one of its streets, but cars are still permitted for 12 hours of the day

Brixham, a small town in south Devon, has come under the spotlight after it emerged on Twitter that authorities had implemented a 24 hour ban on bikes on a town centre street, but will allow cars to use it for 12 hours of the day.

Riders will face an on-the-spot fine of £50 if they are caught using Fore Street, with one man having already been issued a fine since the ruling began.
