Because of idiots like this along with a35 closure, lorries have been cutting through lychett traverse and getting list/ stuck on duller lane corner and may I add this is a blind corner and dangerous at the best of times yet lorry drivers think it's ok and cause people like myself and other drivers having to slam there breaks on and swerve into grass verges to avoid going into the lorry. May I also state that it does have a access only restriction of 7.5t! Twice it hashappened to me on that corner regarding lorries this week, so please careful when traveling on this road.
