Dangerous parking

Reported in the Car parking category by Mick Glover at 14:28, Tue 4 February 2014

Sent to Vale of White Horse District Council 2 minutes later

There are cars parked all day by workers from Ridgeway Garage because the garage does not allow the workers to park on site. So they park in Hans avenue and in Upthorpe Drive. Unfortunately they park on the left hand side of Upthorpe Drive right up to the begging of the road. This causes traffic to slow right down to see if there are cars coming down Upthorpe Drive, This causes the following traffic to swerve out into Harcourt as they cannot wait for the cars to pull into Upthorpe. I think there should be White lines to stop cars parking near the road so the cars can actually pull into Upthorpe to see if they can proceed. Some even Hoot you as your in there way. I'm sick off ignorant people Hooting me every time I try to pull into my road. Oh!! the workers at Ridgeway have been told about there Bad parking but they still do it . I hope you can make Head or Tail of this but Try your best Cheers Mick (77)

  • This request to the council to do something about this safety hazard has fallen on deaf ears. I'm not going to waste anymore time on this as I have now moved and I know this problem will never be resolved.
    Good bye
