Complains department, Potter Bar, Bus Garage.

Living 400meters from Potters Bar Bus Garage has become an issue the past few years.

Many drivers are no longer local to the Potters Bar area. This is bringing many problems to our small town.

Drivers continue to park inappropriately on a daily basis. Parking on junctions, pathways, verges, misusing residents parking permits, inconsiderate blocking of busy roads.

The council have recently painted double yellow lines across from the garage. This is an attempt to prevent drivers from parking on the pavement and completely blocking it. This has not made a difference during evenings and Sundays when the parking is at its worst. This is basic Highway Code rules. hard to believe that a professional driver would behave in this manner.

Everyday I witness Residents parking tickets being used inappropriately. Drivers arriving for work with residents bay permits displayed. Some Garage workers rent in nearby Parkside flats are clearly abusing the permits issued by the council.

Drivers that walk down nearby Oakmere Lane, Oakmere Park and The High street, drop litter on way back to their cars. I have witnessed this myself. You only need to look out for the distinctive ‘black coffee cups’ supplied by the garage. This morning there are 4 new coffee cups dropped within meters of my house since yesterday.

This issues are simple basic good manners. I trust these issues will be dealt with ASAP.
