I asume you reported him to plod with a picture complete with reg number?


Even if they won't prosecute I reckon they would be having a few words for that.

I hope you have reported it Mick.

Blackburn Road is just a mess. They (HBC LCC???) could have transformed the Church end of Blackburn Road if they had used the land they emptied wisely. The road could have been widened with parking bays on both side and bus pull ins on the Health Centre side. Did they do it? No that would have meant someone with common sense and a wish to improve the area doing the planning.

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

By the looks of the photo he hasn't had room to pull in after the bus shelter to park, does that mean he actually drove on the pavement past the bus shelter ?

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

theyhad a clampdown on teh hyndburn road area a few years ago and despite ssuing plenty of tickets they actually GAVE UP

iv mentioned this before because at teh tie it was actually in teh paper how teh council gave up as they simply couldnt win

personaly i would send a fleet of tow truck and remove offenders cars and crush them if they refuse to abide by simple enough laws

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

Blackburn road is a different world when it comes to parking... Go down any weekday night and you will count anyhting between 10-20 illegaly parked cars.. pavement parking, double parking, parking on corners etc.. but parking at bus stops.. double parking.. parking to chat with yer mates... holding up traffic while you get a pizza or a hair cut is wrong..

for some reason its a no go area for the police.. for some reason its allowed...
