Cars conitnually parked opposite junction

Reported in the Parking on street category anonymously at 14:09, Sat 3 August 2019

Sent to Rugby Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council 1 minute later

For over two years cars have been parking directly opposite this junction on the west side of the main road in Dunchurch.This causes queuing traffic and is a hazard to vehicles turning out of the side road as they encounter oncoming vehicles where they dont expect them. Traffic trying to dodge the queue regularly cause further hazards. Particularly a problem for buses and large vehicles. One grey Range Rover is regularly parked there, obstructing road and pavement and has already been hit at least once. Photos and dash cam footage available but obstructions can be witnessed on most days morning and evening

  • This problem is getting worse and becoming dangerous. I notice that drivers now seem to be taking to honking at the vehicles to draw attention to this bad parking
