You are not allowed to drive anywhere to walk your dog or exercise, say police


Police say you are not allowed to get into your car and drive to a location to walk your dog or take exercise.

Officers have been stopping people to issue advice and hand out information in a bid to enforce the lockdown rules.

The rules from the Government which came into force on Monday state that you may only leave your home for four reasons.

As well as medical errands, essential shopping and absolutely essential work you can leave your home once a day to exercise.

Now 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.”

It is unclear whether local authority rules across coastal parts of the country which ban dog walking on beaches from May will be changed to facilitate the new regulations.
