Seen about 4-5 private cars in our road, but no sign of enforcement. Maybe further up in the main road, but don't plan on going anywhere near the shops until next week, so can't say for sure.

Can hear some traffic, although the M5 is 1km from my house. Not the steady drone as on normal days. In fact by now (8.00) there is no traffic noise at all

Looked out the upstairs window and there is someone walking his dog. I recognise him, he lives 3 streets away

I won't be able to see from where our house is at the bottom of our street where just about no-one comes but am waiting for our neighborhood WhatsApp group Karen's to let us know who is sinning.

Seems to be a few cars, taxis going up and down my road, as well as pedestrians. Checked on CCTV.

There's not been a cop in sight for the past 2 days in our area. People were speeding and driving like arseholes.

I'm about 50m from the M5 and can see the same. More cars than I expected.

This is a bit weird. I'm so used to hearing cars and so incredibly quiet out there. I can only hear dogss barking every now and then.

I have a wife and kids, I can imagine a single person will go mad after the first few days. This is akin to solitary confinement with the difference being having access to your phone and access to the internet.

For what it's worth, I saw an ADT vehicle drive by... No coppers or military at all.
