Illegal parking and fly tipping

Why do some of the residents of 242 and 244 Brownfield Rd feel that the law does not apply to them? At every entrance to Brownfield Rd there are signs explaining that it is illegal to park or drive on the footpaths or verges. There are also signs placed along the full length of the road. The council is also supposed to be sending enforcement officers to patrol the road. Every resident in the street received a letter explaining this. The local residents group spent a lot of time and effort planting up the grass verges. Yet every day there are cars parked on the footpath, on the kerbs , on the double yellow lines and on the grass verges. The same attitude seems to apply to the disposal of rubbish. Every other ratepayer has to make a journey to the tip or pay the council to have bulky items removed. If you live at 242 or 244 you just throw them out into the street and the council eventually come along and clean up after them. Why can't every body else get the same treatment? I also want to park where I like. I want to fly tip and have the council come and take it away for nothing. Makes me wonder why I have to pay council tax.
