Cars are regularly parked right uo to, and around Abbey Street in Friary Street. This obstructs teh view when entering or leaving Friary Street. This problem is exacerbated by people regularly using the wide junction to turn their car to go back towards Central Avenue....with complete disregard for anyone approaching teh junction.
For assistance with a vehicle which is causing an obstruction you would need to contact the Police who have powers to take appropriate action. The Police have the authority as the Highway Code states“You MUST NOT leave your vehicle or trailer in a dangerous position or where it causes any unnecessary obstruction of the road. [Laws CSDPA sect 21 & RTRA sects 5 & 8]” In such a case they may issue a Fixed Penalty Notice or arrange removal/relocation of the vehicle.
