Residential street is not free car park
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.
