Res­i­den­tial street is not free car park

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THE Res­i­dents’ Park­ing Only signs in Cres­cent Lane are not il­le­gal.

Yel­low lines would only be able to be painted on a pub­lic road by the roads depart­ment.

Cres­cent Lane is not a pub­lic road and pay­ing road tax does not en­ti­tle you to park there.

The road is owned by Dundee City Coun­cil hous­ing depart­ment and each and every ten­ant and house owner has an of­fi­cial doc­u­ment to show that they are en­ti­tled to park on the road as they are res­i­dent in Cres­cent Lane.

If you are not a res­i­dent, you should not park there.

How­ever, cars park there for the whole day, us­ing it as a free car park.

They park on the grass, on the pave­ment, on the re­cently land­scaped flower bor­ders and across dropped kerb dis­abled ac­cess places too.

Bla­tant dis­re­gard for all who live here and for the money and hard work done by Dundee City Coun­cil in plant­ing and main­tain­ing the flower beds. I ex­pect Lady­well Av­enue is in the same boat as us.

I’m re­ally fed up of ig­no­rant driv­ers who are con­vinced they can park here all day be­cause they pay road tax.

They are not en­ti­tled to — they should pay for a car park or get a bus into town and leave their car in front of their own houses.

I have lived here more than 20 years and don’t like liv­ing here any­more. I don’t think the peo­ple who park here from early morn­ing un­til late evening would like to go home and not be able to park any­where near their house.

Long-time res­i­dent.
