This van has parked on a junction illegally, I was trying to get off my driveway this morning and I clearly can’t see anything coming in the junction because this inconsiderate idiot has parked in the most stupid place they can think of. The parking issues on this junction need to be sorted, it is causing a really bad hazard to other road users. A car came in that junction this morning almost crashing into my coming off my driveway due to us both not being able to see. This junction needs to be marked out.
I have forwarded your request for new road markings to our Traffic and Safety team.
Warwickshire County Council does not have the authority to deal with vehicles parked inappropriately at this location. 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.
