power of ar­rest other than by a ci­ti­zen’s ar­rest. Pa­thetic cheap polic­ing! Dave Pater­son: Th­ese guys do a great ser­vice Danny Hunter: Don’t park il­le­gally then, sim­ple. Pete Hamil­ton: PCSOs are sup­posed to sup­port the com­mu­nity not the po­lice! Les­leyann He­hir: If you park your car like that then does it mat­ter who gives you a ticket? Park where we all have to park, in the car park! Chris Bam­ford: I wish they would hand them out on Park Lane in Poyn­ton. I’m sick of hav­ing to dodge the lazy and in­con­sid­er­ate who schlep the pave­ment to pop in Greggs or the cash­point. There’s so much free park­ing in Poyn­ton it’s a dis­grace. Adrian Shaw: Queensway is even worse and there’s a car park across the road! Tracy Par­rott: Adrian no one seems to ever get a ticket there! It’s like wacky races on Queensway nowa­days. Su­san O’Don­nell French: Isn’t there more im­por­tant things to do? Peo­ple are stop­ping com­ing into Mac­cles­field be­cause of park­ing, shops clos­ing etc, etc Carl Simp­son: I take it most of the peo­ple who have com­mented are do-good­ers and never park il­le­gally, yeah right, if they weren’t sup­posed to hand them out they shouldn’t have done it, or shall I go out and hand tick­ets out? Danny Hunter: Re­gard­less of whether its le­gal or not most of those mo­torists prob­a­bly de­serve the tick­ets so I’m fully be­hind the po­lice on this one. Chris Bam­ford: In my ex­pe­ri­ence the PCSOs in Poyn­ton are ab­so­lutely bril­liant. Po­lite, in­forma- tive and help­ful. They are a tremen­dous as­set to the vil­lage and I hope this ar­ti­cle doesn’t re­flect on them or the good ser­vice they de­liver. Lyn­don Swindell: The mo­torist who feels they are en­ti­tled a re­fund, are the ones who feel en­ti­tled to flout the law.... Sue Ni­cholls: I agree. Some peo­ple re­ally take the mick when they park.
