Re: Parking on Blackburn road

Does this part of the highway code not stand on Blackburn Road? "218 DO NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement unless signs permit it."

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

as stated many times by myself and was actually printed in the local paper , the council had a clamp down in the area but fines were simply ignored and nothing was acheived, why it was left to the council to sort out god only knows but i think traffic parking issues have been taken out of teh polices hands and given to councils to enforce via traffic wardens

the council according to the paper said that they actually gave up trying to enforce traffic law there

pcso's can now give parking tickets etc but whats the point when its a mine field trying to find out who the actuall owner is or who was driving the car or if the person resposible actually has a driving licence

rather than give up on an area they shoudl have got tougher and simply sent in towing trucks and sent the violators car to the crusher regardless of its age or condition because to get the message accross its going to take zero tolerance and affirimitave action until the learn that you have to follow the law regardless of what area you live in

if there ever becomes such a campaign i would gladly do the job for free and take great pleasure in taking cars to the crushing machine

when one area is seen to be getting away with murder people rightly or wrongly think well if its ok for them its ok for me and then the problem spreads

rant over for now , soap box back in its corner lol

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

These are definitely traffic offences Mick, although not criminal offences, (so police not really interested) and liable to a fine of 60. It is a bus clearway (easily seen by the heavier yellow line) and restriction runs from the middle of the road to the edge of the private space.
Not even unloading is allowed on here.

You would probably be better sending the pictures to :-


enquiries@parkwise.lancscc.gov.uk .. the civil body who deal with parking offences ... not H.B.C.

Owts worth a try.

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

Blackburn road is one of the most used roads throughout hyndburn and it is by far the worst road.People just seem to prk where an when ever they want.Iwas stood at my front door this am and watched a traffic warden book a number of cars yet i have never seen one on blackburn road.The stretch from the old grammer sch heading towards town is a nightmare there are cars alwys parked up on the pavements why is nothing ever done i must not be the only person who has noticed the problem.Accrington is crying out for people to shop and visit the town but would you bother when you cant even walk on the pavements and be safe.

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

I have to say the council have done their very best to close down buisnesses with traffic calming and pointless yellow lines, this was a major traffic route at one time and now it's just chaos, I wouldn't mind but the whole area is surrounded by derelict land (O sorry that's for the travellers)

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

It's not the first time on here that the traffic problems on Blackburn Rd have been brought up as being a very annoying feature of the town.

Amongst our members we have the Leader of the council and the leader of the opposition who may himelf become council leader one day. Are we to assume that because this problem has the word ROAD in it they pass the buck to LCC ? Would be good to hear their views on the problem, I suspect a lot of tumbleweed may pass by before we see any comment

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

You could have thought that the police would have an interest in this after all it is there forte isn't it, they ain't much good at catch crims but motorists!!!!!!!! Must be a bit like British Rail, you know the wrong snow kind of thing, this must be the wrong kind of motorists

If you don't get any joy go further up the ladder and get our MP involved, Greg won't stand for that kind of malarkey.
