Yellow lines too short

Reported in the Road Signage category anonymously at 09:02, Saturday 15 August 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council 21 hours, 7 minutes later

The new yellow lines to prevent cars parking across the junction now encourage the first car to park immediately opposite our driveway. When cars are parked on both sides of the road it is no longer possible to enter or exit the driveway to number 84, as the road is too narrow for a vehicle to turn. This problem never occurred prior to the lines. The solution would be to extend the yellow line by 2m to allow space to exit the drive.
