Two vehicles ostucting firetruck access, abusing double yellow as free overnight parking

Since late August (it’s now early October) there have been several occasions when these same two cars have been parked between 8pm-8am; the drivers arrive each morning to take their cars away for the day, and return at night to park. Obstructing access: often a fight will break out between trucks trying to navigate the narrow remaining access to make deliveries. Thank heaven we have not yet had a fire but there is certainly not enough space for one to get through.

  • Six months later we have the same problem still. Cars & vans turn up and are left for days at a time but nobody tickets them. Very suspicious the parking wardens are being paid off by the vehicle owners.
