Police enforce travel restrictions

Police are making it clear that exercise has to be done from your home – you are not allowed to drive to another location to either exercise or walk your dog.

Avon and Somerset Police have been handing out information after stopping drivers at popular dog-walking spots.

It reads: “The government restrictions currently in place do not permit you to use your vehicle to travel to this location to exercise.
Each and every one of us has been instructed to avoid all unnecessary travel.
You are entitled to exercise once daily. This should be by walking, running or cycling from your home address.
You should not be driving to a location away from home to carry this out.”

See the Avon & Somerset Police website for more information on the police response to the current crisis.
