Cars are continuously parked at the junction of the Crackthorne Drive roundabout on Coton Park. This problem has been ongoing for as long as I’ve lived here (6 years) It causes a huge obstruction as cars are forced onto the wrong side of the road round a blind bend. As this is a bus route you always risk a head on collision with the bus.
Warwickshire County Council does not have the authority to deal with vehicles parked inappropriately at this location. For assistance with a vehicle which is causing an obstruction you would need to contact the Police who have powers to take appropriate action. The Police have the authority as the Highway Code states“You MUST NOT leave your vehicle or trailer in a dangerous position or where it causes any unnecessary obstruction of the road. [Laws CSDPA sect 21 & RTRA sects 5 & 8]” In such a case they may issue a Fixed Penalty Notice or arrange removal/relocation of the vehicle.
