Sent to Wiltshire Council less than a minute later

Two cars illegally parked on the corner of Sycamore Grove and College Road Trowbridge whilst using the Co-Op shop opposite, Tuesday 1st July 2014, 14:55pm; Cream coloured Mini-One Convertible "WU12 JXH" and white coloured Volkswagon Convertible "WN14 NFM". Breach of Highway Code and RTRA sections 5 & 8, parts 238 & 243, must not park on double yellow line, must not park where a kerb is lowered for mobility/pedestrian users, must not park on a bend, must not park within 10 metres of a junction. This was during chool pick up time and as you can see from photographs, some pedestrians and children had to carefully negotiate past these illegally parked cars to see clearly, the line of sight and crossing was clearly illegally obstructed by this pair of inconsiderate drivers.

  • two drivers were contacted by police, one had a slap onthe wrist, the other claimed to be a disabled driver, however, if that truly was the case then the disabled driver should have known better, disabled drivers are usually quite considerate of others access when they park, but this driver(s) clearly was not as the dropped kerb was blocked by the parked cars!

    State changed to: Fixed
