He used to be at the Church end of Blackburn Road though. maybe he never goes into Accy centre because the traffic is so bad with all the abandoned, sorry parked, cars everywhere.

Now he is at 50 Abbey Street, Accrington BB5 1EE, so maybe he comes into town the other way

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

What amuses me is that none of these offenders have ever been clamped, its not long ago that I heard about a bloke having his car clamped on spare ground next to his home, he was actually doing the car up and was going to tax and insure it when it was again road worthy, it wasn't on the highway but he still got fleeced

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

I think I have mentioned this before.. but so what! In Bury, there used to be traffic wardens up and down the road all day, every day, except on Saturday morning, when the nearby mosque was busy, the parking was chaotic and idiotic, and not a traffic warden, or policeman to be seen, and before anybody fews this as remotely racist, I had many parking tickets for loading/unloading into my own shop, that is the gripe!

Its not being racists derek, its telling it like it is, you can't be labeled for telling the truth, but like always there are two sets of rules, and we are saddled with the set that gives tickets for parking

There is a car parked wholly on the pavement at the Dill Hall end of First Avenue. It looked like it was being repaired. I never noticed if the tax disc was current but would it be classed as not being on a highway if the disc was out of date??

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

I'm away at the moment and hadn't seen this thread until AndrewB emailed me (hat tip, as our friend Guido Fawkes says!).

As quite a few hard working councillors post on here (as well as The Great Leader now - should he be known as TGL henceforth?) I dare say that this may get sorted. I'll add my bit with the Council next week.

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

to be fair on teh council teh police need to work with teh council on this because i myself have witness traffic cops turn a blind eye to very serious parking offences along blackburn road such as abondoning their cars at red trafficlights so they can nip into teh shop to talk to their pals causing traffic jams or even parking side by side blocking teh road while they have a natter or going down 1 way streets teh wrong way because its quicker

i bet you my last pound as soon as a clampdown occurs it will be in teh papers that teh council and police only targeted the area because its a highly asian populated area and not because the area is teh worst in hyndburn for traffic offences

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

It seems to me that if you stand in the area of the old college and watch the cars go by certain members of the car driving population are exempt from the laws relating to seat belts, ringing friends when driving, blue lights displayed on a non emergency vehicle etc etc
