2 or more cars parked half on grass verge half on road at junction of Stonewell Crescent and Whitestone Road resulting in unsighted junction when turning left out of Stonewell Cresent into Whitestone Road. Also potential risk when turning left into Stonewell Cresent from Whitestone Road due to vehicle on the wrong side of the road as they need to manoeuvre around parked cars. Many thanks for your time.
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.
