Dangerous double parking

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 18:06, Sunday 16 February 2020

Sent to Edinburgh City Council 4 minutes later

After Sainsburys where allowed to build a shop here with zero thought to parking lots of people started double parking. The problem started almost immediately with plenty people double parking to go into the shop, it was bad immediately but it has now gotten horrendous there is almost always at least 1 car double parked with 2 of more often many don't even try to pull in at all and just stop dead in the lane causing serious problems. This would be a big issue under normal circumstances but there is a secondary school here as well, it is a miracle that no children have been hit yet but with the way the road is now it is only a matter time until that happens. I have tried to write to you about this previously but got no response back from the council and nothing has been done to deal with it.Please try to get the council to look at this before someone gets hit or worse killed.

  • As with last time I reported this problem I have heard nothing back from the council about it and there have been zero apparent efforts to sort it before a child gets run over
