Parking on main road obscuring driver view from junction

Reported via mobile in the Car parking category anonymously at 20:49, Thu 23 March 2023

Sent to Darlington Borough Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4351857.

243 Highway code: two vehicles constantly park illegally at junction obstructing drivers ability to view traffic on the main road. This illegal parking is also dangerous because vehicles on the major road cannot see cars on the junction exiting Princess Road. In addition there is an exit to two busy businesses, The White Horse public house and Croxdale Tyre Centre on Burtree Lane. This issue has been occurring for at least the last twenty years and no action has been taken. I have raised this issue previously but after another near miss accident today I will be raising this issue again until some suitable action is taken.

  • The council have replied to my message but have clearly not visited the site in question or reviewed the attached photograph. I have passed my email to their line manager recently and am waiting a response.

  • I emailed line manager because I hadn't received a response. They must have passed the email to another person who emailed back stating they were going to monitor the junction. They advised a response would take a few weeks.
