Fine those dozy parkers
IN THE last 18 months I have pestered police, PCSOs and Councillors Wiggins, Churchill and others in Plymstock, regarding cars parked half on half off pavements and parked in a similar fashion in junctions. The councillors refer you to the police and PCSOs and tell you they have no powers and the police really do not want to know. So what do these people actually do in their service to the public? It would appear that the subject of parking is a priority to no-one.
The police appear to have little or no knowledge of the law concerning parking. Why should they ignore vehicles that park in a position likely to cause a danger to others? Legislators saw fit to attach a fine and three penalty points to such an offence.
The council has the powers from the Department of Transport to prevent such parking. If the authorities in London can implement and enforce no parking on pavements anywhere, why can it not be done in various trouble-spots in and around the city?
Would anyone do anything if we all parked in the Piazza on Saturday rather than paying for parking? Somehow I think they would.
