Agreed.Its really gotten out of hand around Abingdon Residential Areas. More & More Mud. Yes it is unlawful to mount a raised kerb at all. Yes it is unlawful to drive or place ones wheels on the pavement or drive 100s yards half up a pavement. It is unlawful to drive or park on private land without permission. It is unlawful to wait on certain yellow lines at certain times of day. It is unlawful to throw cigarette butts or other litter out of your wound down car window onto the ground. Having said all that they still do it. If the Council really wants to make money employ half a dozen enforcers to go round any day of the week slapping all sorts of fixed penalty notices at 80 pounds a pop. Ha the other day Tom was passing a load of these jay parked vehicles all blocking the way with his big weekly bag of rubbish on foot for recycling.Lightweight trash like aluminium tin cans plastic bottles the like. He couldnt get past and 'accidentally'keyed the bag against a cars side!It made a hell of a noise but no damage. Youve never seen the driver jump out so fast! Some toffee nosed self entitled woman in her own bubble breaking 4 traffic laws. Fortunately no real damage was caused but Tom isnt insured anyhow! Maybe she'll think twice next time realising the inconvenience and nuisance shes selfishly causing. Toms a nice guy and would never do anything bad..

The installation formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a traffic regulation order which involves a long and expensive legal process including full consultation, external funding would be required for this process. It should be noted that if vehicles are parking in either a dangerous position or in such a manner as to cause an obstruction of the public highway they are committing an offence under section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, this legislation is enforced by Thames Valley Police
