From Gloucester Road around the one way system to Meadow Street there is a ridiculous amount of vans parked overnight in contravention of the highway code requiring vehicles over 2500kg GVW parked on a public road to display lights at night. LAWS RVLR reg 24 & CUR reg 82(7). Many are left on corners obstructing junctions and double yellow lines and dropped kerbs. This includes Mercedes Vito, Ford transit and Mercedes sprinter vans all over 2500kg GVW. Access for emergency vehicles is severely restricted, Fire engines have no hope of getting round and ambulance will struggle.
