PARKING IN THIS VICINITY - PCSO Tamara Bennett
Due to a number of complaints about parking in the village, we find it necessary to remind you of your obligations under the Road Traffic Act when parking your vehicle. Rule 140 in the Highway Code states:
Think before you park. DO NOT park your vehicle where it would endanger or inconvenience pedestrians or other road users, for example:
- On a footpath, pavement or cycle track;
- Near a School entrance;
- Within 10 meters (32ft) of a junction.
This notice is intended as a warning. Continued parking in this location may result in prosecution for the offence of Unnecessary Obstruction, contrary to Regulation` 103 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986, Section 42 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and Schedule 2 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
