A car crashed into one of Viaduct Road’s plant pot chicanes in the early hours of this morning.
The crash, which only involved one car, happened shortly before 3am.
Nobody was hurt.
A police spokesman said: “At 2.52am on Friday (27 May) police were called to Viaduct Road, Brighton, where a black Honda Civic car had collided with street furniture.
“The driver, a 37-year-old man from Brighton, was unhurt. No other vehicles were involved.”
A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said: “We sent a car and an ambulance to the scene.
“The patient had been able to get out of their vehicle by themselves and no one required hospital treatment.”
The plant pots were placed in the road last year as part of a trial to reduce speeds in Viaduct Road.
In the first few weeks, the average speed reduced from about 50mph to less than 30mph along the road, which is part of the city’s 20mph zone.
Residents have been told they may now be replaced with communal bins, although no official permanent replacement has been proposed.
A council spokeswoman said: “The trial scheme on Viaduct Road will be assessed and permanent solutions proposed as part of the 2016/17 Local Transport Plan Programme.
“Any proposals will be subject to consultation.”
