It's not just Blackburn Rd. In Gt Harwood I am sure that double yellow lines must mean something different than what they do in the rest of the Borough.
that sums it up bernard, if peter is treated same as paul, much less problems n annoyance.

I think the true responsibility lies with the fact that parking is now in the hands of local authorities and not the police, but there again police cars continually travel along Blackburn Road and don't do anything about this problem, maybe they are afraid of having the race card waved in their face by the do gooders

It is a good excuse to stop a car so they can check everything out

That is not completely the case.

Obstruction is still down to the Police.

Well it actually looks like the wardens are leaving it to the police and the police leaving it to the wardens, like a mexican stand off, then nobody does out

The police would only be involved with obstruction if affecting moving traffic, like if someone parked across the middle of the road, etc., or as per Accyman's post someone blocking the entrance to a property.

That's funny kate I got a ticket in 1986 for parking outside the Casualty department at BRI even though I was displaying a valid disabled badge and time clock. I was attending an emergency appointment on a Friday afternoon, the ticket was issued by a traffic cop, I was actually admitted and spent 2 weeks on the ward. I contact the LET regarding the matter and wrote to the chief constable stating my case, the fine was waved and they sent the money back

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

Blooming hek Jaysay, you are going back a bit there .. if you look at the Blackburn and Darwen B.C.'s website, they took over parking problems from the Lancashire police in October, 2004. First paragraph.

Decriminalised parking : Parking : Transport and streets : Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council

I was wondering when the responsibility changed from Police to Council, maybe it was don't so as to allow the police to concentrate more on catching criminals, so quite obviously it failed

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

Illegal parking doesnt just apply where yellow lines are present though does it? Double parking, parking in a bus bay, on zig zags, less than 15 feet from a corner, parking on the footpath, too far away from a kerb, just to cover one area, Dill Hall Lane is now a single track road in places because of double parking, with 2 wheels on the kerb, with many lost wing mirrors over recent months to show for it!
