Motorists say confusing road signs are to blame. Medway Council blames irresponsible driving. But now it seems satellite navigation systems are the cause of traffic chaos around Chatham's new bus station.

The council has put up signs warning drivers to ignore their satnavs because many out of date models are directing cars through the bus station, endangering pedestrians. It's hoped the signs will stop the 90 vehicles a day that end up driving through the Kent bus station.

Robin Cooper, from the council says, "We are asking people to please look out of the window when they are driving instead of listening to their sat-nav. These can quite often be out of date or even wrong."

"We have already ringed the bus station with 15 signs and other road markings asking motorists not to drive through it. We have also put in place automatic number plate recognition cameras to catch those that do."
