DOUBLE YELLOW LINES
« on: August 20, 2018, 08:45:51 AM »
I  read with some concern that yellow lines maybe introduced in the Tynings, something really needs to be done but its only the one or two selfish home owners that do not use their drives for their cars. the problem is that all those homes on the Warminster road, from the Chalford hotel to the RCB believe the tynings is there parking space, directly causing a danger to traffic and pedestrians alike.
yellow lines i do not think will solve this issue but make it worse, for those that live here

Your local Wiltshire Councillor is Gordon King. Your concerns about The Tynings should be directed to him.


You will also be able to take part in the public consultation, but as that takes place after the decision to proceed, you may prefer to speak to Gordon ...

A public road Dorian, doesn't matter where people live they are entitled to park on it.

so for example, you would have no qualms in people creating a road hazard by parking cars outside a line of properties whilst living many yards from where they live. interesting!
i respect your view and have no problem with you making it, but equally i wholeheartedly believe you are incorrect

Is it more hazardous to park a car on the road if you don't live in the area then?

Actually, there is no right to park on a highway except in marked parking areas on the terms stated.


It is simply that the Police will not fine anyone or move the vehicle unless the parked vehicle is causing a nuisance (the police will decide if it is causing a sufficient nuisance).

i think it bloody inconsiderate to park a vehicle in an are that you do not live in, bloody inconsiderate, especially as there is parking a few extra yards to walk if the parked accordingly

When you buy a house, do you buy the road in front of it? No.

That said I have great sympathy here. My driveway holds all the cars in the household and I wouldn't have it any other way. If I were in charge of the country (dont panic, I'm not) I'd not allow anyone without a parking space to own a car.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

In a nutshell Dorian, you are happy for local residents to park outside a line of houses causing a hazard but not other people. What a weird logic.  If cars parked on a road are causing a hazard it doesn't matter the postcode of the driver, you should be welcoming the double yellow lines in order to prevent the hard you describe.

ok. ok
travel down the Alfred street from the bratton road and you will see a Black audi parked illegally next to a house, there is no way a ambulance or anything else could pass to continue its journey, so therefore, no weird logic at all. just inconsiderate car owners who think they can park where thy wish. maybe you do not see the dangers that i refer to

Then why don't you want yellow lines there to stop the hazardous parking?

That is why I asked the question. On the one hand you state that parking there is hazardous, you then say you don't support measures to remove the hazard. Your argument seems a bit confused, and muddled

ok , maybe dont have the answers, hence the question, 1 to keep the forum going and ,2 to see if there any bright cookies out there who may be able to assist.... so, to stop these cars parking in an area that is causing the council to look at yellow lines, MY thoughts would be around parking permits. there are two cars parked here that have not moved for two weeks, would parking permits quell this issue?
is this less muddled!

ok, I see the reason now. It isn't really about hazardous parking, you want to stop non residents parking in the road. How about a residents parking scheme. There was one introduced in Trowbridge a few years ago which I hear was a success.
