On many occasions in the last 2 months, there have been cars that have parked overhanging the junction of Cheverel street. This makes it very dangerous to manoeuvre when turning from Cheverel St to Deacon St and many cars have had close calls.
As traffic wardens are now back to normal duty, please can they monitor this so that the offenders can use their powers to rightfully fine those owners who fail to take note of their dangerous parking.
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.
