Many cars day and night especially nights and weekends parked right up to the corner of Wingfield and Redcatch causing dangerous obstruction to traffic turning from Redcatch into Wingfield or Wingfield into Redcatch, also. Blocking /parking across dropped kerb so that pedestrians with pushchairs and motorised mobility scooters are hampered and the parking on both sides on the pavement also narrowing the road to the extent that bigger vehicles have difficulties turning into Wingfield from Redcatch. Many of the vehicles up and down Wingfield road are parked facing the wrong way. Big commercial vehicles and lorries also parked along Wingfield facing the wrong direction. Wingfield road is on a slope and the way these big commercial vehicles are parked very close to residential driveways causes visual obstruction when residents trying to exit their own driveways. Commercial lorries parked opposite residential driveways have caused vehicle damage when residents trying to exit their own driveways. There are cars that are parked along Wingfield that’s left for weeks at a time eventhough taxed stay parked, straddling the pavement and facing the wrong way. Commercial lorries and vehicles parked straddling pavement causing obstruction as well as facing the wrong way not in marked parking areas post a serious danger to other road users and Highway Code states that this is an offence that warrants a £1000 fine for private vehicles and £2000 fine for commercial vehicles. please do something about this. This is an ongoing problem and getting worse.
