Illegal parking blocking vision

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 23:26, Sun 3 March 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Vehicles regularly illegally park on the pavement/grassverge the north corner of the T junction between Prescott avenue and The Fairway. This blocks the vision of drivers trying to pull out - they cannot see traffic coming from the north until they have pulled in the middle of the road.

The south corner has already bollard to prevent this, can 1-2 bollards be placed on the north corner to prevent this problem please.

Council ref: ENQ19827999

  • Thank you for your report. There are double yellow lines in this location, if residents have crossed those lines to park on the verge, please report this to Thames valley police who have the powers to enforce this with a fixed penalty notice.

  • Thank you for the update. The double yellow lines have not prevented the problem. Even if TVP hands over a ticket every time someone parks there (no idea if it is residents), the vision for vehicles pulling out of Prescott avenue will still be blocked thus the safety issue remains unresolved. 1-2 bollards mirroring the opposite corner setup (I guess for the same problem?) would do it. If however the council's investigation has confirmed it is residents' vehicles a letter may be a good start.
