Where have the traf­fic war­dens gone?

Campbeltown Courier - - LETTERS -

Sir

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.
