Parking near junction

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 17:47, Sat 14 September 2019

Sent to Plymouth City Council 2 minutes later

This van has been parking very near to the junction of Merafield Rise leading onto Merafield Drive. This contravenes The Highway Code Waiting and Parking Rule 243 of parking opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space.

The position of this vehicle blocks the vision of drivers turning left onto Merafield Rise from Merafield Drive thus forcing drivers to maneuver onto the opposite side of the road onto incoming traffic. As this is also a bus route, it can also disrupt the flow of traffic especially if the bus has stopped.

This problem has been ongoing for some considerable time with various vehicles. Hopefully measures will be taken to prevent potential accidents.
