Parked Cars Overlap Into Road

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 14:23, Monday 21 January 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 1519296.

The parking area at the side of the road is used by vehicles that park "nose in" so the back of the vehicle overhangs the road. If it's a large vehicle such as a van or 4x4 they stick out so much into the road which means road users have to swerve around them. The spaces are not large enough for large vehicles and they should be reserved for small cars only.
