Illegal parking

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 20:14, Wed 28 March 2012

Sent to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council 1 minute later

There are several owners of cars who park illegally along a short stretch of Stainforth Close. They park right next to a corner making cars turning the corner go right into the middle of the road, they park facing away from the direction of the flow of the traffic so that at nighttime they are less visible. They also park right across the pavement so that people have to walk in the road to go around them. Two children were out playing on the pavement today and a lady in her car beeped her horn for them to move out of the way so that she could park on the pavement! There are lots of children who play out in the close as well as parents with young children in pushchairs or prams who are having to walk in the road because of the selfishness of these people. Also as the road is fairly narrow and cars park on both sides of the road there at times there would be access problems for larger vehicles which is worrying if anyone needs a fire engine or ambulance in an emergency.

  • Council member got back to me fairly quickly but said I needed to refer the problem to the police as it's their domain. Having already done this previously and the problem wasn't sorted, feel as if my complaints have fallen on deaf ears.
