Where have the traffic wardens gone?
Longrow South has become an obstacle course between the hours of 9am to 5pm daily.
Both sides of the road are marked with a single yellow line, according to the Highway Code this is defined as ‘parking or waiting at the roadside is prohibited at certain times of day, the exact times vary by area and are indicated by signs at the roadside.’
The sign on Longrow South indicates that parking is restricted Monday to Saturday, 9am - 6pm.
Parking in this area should only be used for pick up, drop off or loading and unloading for a maximum of 10 minutes.
Larger vehicles, such as buses and lorries have become increasingly obstructed by illegally parked vehicles.
If traffic wardens are not going to enforce these issues, surely the local police can drive past every few hours to monitor the situation, there is also a CCTV camera in Main Street which can be positioned to cover the Longrow South area.
A traffic warden used to made sporadic visits to the town but has not been seen recently in the area. Name and address supplied.
