Parking on path/junction

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 19:04, Wed 13 August 2014

Sent to Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

Here we are, just an hour or so later and path/junction/kerb slope is parked on again ! (car is outside number 18 but does not belong to them or visitors to that house, the van in foreground is not on path but is parked all wheels on road) This car is not onto path quite as much as earlier red car so a single padestrian can sqeeze by, but why should we have to walk in sigle file? If pushing a large pushchair why should we have to walk in road to get by? The car although not blocking path completely, the problem with that it is also blocking the road traffic turning into the junction more than the earlier red car was and now if,as often happens another car will park on path outside number 1 nothing bigger than a family car will be able to use road . There are 19 houses in this road why should we put up with it because "it's residents themselves parking on path"? Its not ALL the residents doing it so why is nothing done?

  • The site was visited at 18.00hrs on 22/10/14, at this time no vehicles were parked in the positions shown in the photographs. When vehicles are parked in the position shown and preventing use of the footway they are committing the offence of 'obstruction' under section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and should therefore be reported to Thames Valley Police.

  • No problem is not fixed, people still park on the footpaths around this junction. The patch of grass outside number 1 is now totally destroyed with just a great big hole there filled with water and the mud spread over path. In fact hole is now so deep/wet/muddy that at least hopefully it will itself start to be a deterrent to car drivers driving onto path. Perhaps that is now council policy? let the greenery be so destroyed that not even cars can use them anymore?
