Parking on a junction
Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 11:13, Sat 24 October 2020
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
Parking on a junction causing other drivers to be on incorrect side of road on the junction. Forcing an unnecessary potential collision. Suggestions to extend yellow lines to match keep clear marking on the junction. Maybe an 20 mph limit to be put in place as near a school. Please note parking 7 days not just school times.
Council ref: ENQ20879147

Thank you for your report and please accept our apologies for the significant delay in response. The installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a ‘Traffic Regulation Order’, this involves a long and expensive legal process including public consultation, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council do not currently have the available funding for such a scheme.
We would suggest that an initial approach is made to your Parish Council so that due consideration can be given towards its priority within the local area and so that the proposal can be endorsed and promoted locally. Parish Councils are also well placed to secure the necessary financial cost to such a scheme.
It should be noted that if vehicles are parked in such a manner as to cause an obstruction of the highway they are committing an offence under Section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and can therefore be moved by Thames Valley Police
