Along comes Highways at last and put double yellow lines down, but with marked parking bays. One 25m section has bays marked on both sides of the road. Width between bays along this bit in the middle, is around 7 feet. I have emailed our local councillor and the reply said they will rely on those parking to use common sense - when did those parking ever show any common sense?
In the same village, where parking is at a premium and both sides of the main street with usually just enough width to squeeze a bus through. There is a Wetherspoons, which often has large delivery lorries struggling to stop to deliver. Highways marked out a bus stop, double yellow lines, a single car length bay, more yellow lines, then a three car bay. The double yellow lined sections are far to short for a delivery lorry, so often their lorry has to obstruct the road whilst they are made. Had the single car bay been moved to join the other three bays their lorry could have pulled in and avoided causing chaos which it does.
Which school do the Highways planners attend?
