Obstruction from Parked Vehicles

Reported in the Obstruction or hazard on road category anonymously at 11:41, Mon 3 September 2018

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 3 minutes later

The turn from Tachbrook Road into Ranelagh Terrace is usually obstructed by vehicles parked on Ranelagh Terrace too close to the junction. Especially for the left turn, a vehicle parked on Ranelagh Terrace causes the complete loss of visibility and creates dangerous situations on the junction. This kind of parking is forbidden by law (Rule 243 of the Highway Code, must not park within 10 meters of a junction). An appropriate double yellow marking and enforcing the rules will help to alleviate this issue.
