Parking on yellow lines

Reported via Android in the Obstruction or hazard on road category by John Newton at 01:42, Sun 19 August 2018

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 2 minutes later

From 13:30hrs onwards on Thurs 16th August we watched over 18 vehicles pulling up and parking on the yellow lines along Long Street from opposite Lloyds Bank and onwards. At one point there wasn't a single space free for another vehicle to illegally park !!! Ridiculous, a hazard to vehicles larger than a car trying to pass and impossible for pedestrians to attempt to cross between them !! NO Traffic Wardens or Police, and thankfully no Fires or medical emergencies since no emergency vehicle would have got through........ Why bother with the yellow lines ?? And the Council are missing out on a guaranteed extremely lucrative money earner !!

  • This needs to be reported to the police, Warwickshire County Council have no authority over on-street parking in North Warwickshire District Council's boundary.

  • Council not 'interested' or willing to attempt sorting it, blaming Police again, nothing from the Police etc. Unfortunately it'll take a bad accident, pedestrian or cyclist knocked down etc before anything is done ?
