DARING motorists are being warned over causing traffic problems when the barriers at Topsham railway station are down.

PC Kevin Wetherell said when the station barriers were down and the queue extended towards Bridge Hill, some drivers were overtaking and going the wrong side of the bollard prior to the roundabout.
