Legal parking causing traffic flow issues

Reported via desktop anonymously at 15:43, Tuesday 8 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

Cars are parking on the south side of Ormond Road very close to Trinder Road and Icknield Lane junction. This causes restricted visibility when exiting Trinder Road and causes traffic flow problems along Ormond Road because it is on a bend on the road and because parking is allowed on the north side of the road, in effect causing a chicane. Especially bad when coaches and lorries use the road.I strongly feel there should be double yellow lines on this section of the road.

  • Thank you for your report. The installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a ‘Traffic Regulation Order’ which in involves a long and expensive legal process including full consultation, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council could not fund such a scheme at this time.

    It should be noted that if a vehicle is parked in either a dangerous position or in such a position as to cause an obstruction these are offences under Section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, this legislation is enforced by Thames Valley Police.
