Correct dave, but what annoys me is that if this happened in any other part of town, tickets would be in full flow, when all's said and don't the police know exactly whats going on, but choose not to do anything, they turn a blind I and do a Nelson "I See No Cars"

im think at the bottom of willows lane they have removed the yellow no entry box unless your exit is clear just before the lights heading into accy

probably realised it was a waste of paint re-painting them lol

Nope, your right, they haven't repainted it, many a time ive been sat behind the box and drivers from the side road have stopped in it waiting for the traffic to move, think it was a waste of paint anyway

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

after people not indicating my second biggest gripe is people who park too close to junctions . especialy in great big whopping vans

as i have said before UK traffic laws do not apply down blackburn road at all, i know other areas can be bad but that whole area takes it to the limit

driving along blackburn road is like enetering the wakey races,if you can get from church to accy center with both yuor wing mirors still intact you win

The only time I've been given a parking ticket accyman was for parking to close to a road junction. It was in Carlisle back in 1974 and I'd parked up over night near our digs, the van was 13 feet from the junction. The thing is the ticket cost me just 2 in those days

No good repainting it when the newly laid road surface is breaking up - Again. Who ever employed these people to do this resurfacing needs to get the money back and get a decent company to do it. Just shows that you get crap when you go for the cheapest.

Surely you didn't expect him to park in the area marked as the Bus stop Mick - he'd be impeding traffic flow and parking illegally then!!

There was a 4x4 parked near the bottom of Willows Lane about 4pm yesterday and it was so far onto the pavement you'd have had to edge past sideways!! Yet another who didn't want to impede the traffic!
