Continuous parking along double yellows causing lack of visibility when turning in and potential to cause an accident

Cars park all the way up to the junction so if you waiting to turn out, cars coming from the right can’t see and turn in. There’s a bush further up which means you can’t see to the left when turning up the busy road from Kings wharf. If waiting to turn in from mill street, coming fro. Town centre, you have to look right but can’t see what’s coming and left to make sure people aren’t speeding up to mill street, then I turn in and if a car is coming from the wharf towards the junction someone has to reverse or become stuck in the flow of traffic pulling into the junction. This is an accident waiting to happen. I have a lot more pictures

  • Today (12th June), there was a near miss between myself and another car. I was near the end of the road near the junction and a car turned in. Car had to stop so was half in the road, car behind them nearly went into the back of them. I couldn't get on my side of the road as there was a car parked right up the junction. This is really dangerous and will cause an accident. Road markings need to be changed to avoid an accident.
