Cars parked on double yellow lines

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction category anonymously at 22:00, Friday 29 March 2024

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5783570.

Vehicles are constantly parking on double yellow lines in stapleton road just passed st marks road on the left (if you're going towards the train station) and blocking the road! I was stuck here for 10 minutes today as a bus tried to pass but couldn't!! It's getting absolutely ridiculous, cars thinking they can just stop anywhere and not caring if they block the road! I travel down the road twice a day and EVERYDAY someone is parked there!

  • This is a really big problem. The pavements are completely obstructed, meaning pedestrians have to walk in an already congested road to move up the street, which is dangerous. For anyone in a wheelchair, reliant on mobility aids, or with prams, the area is impassable. I now use a longer route home from the train station as it's such a nightmare to walk up. Alongside this, the pavement is small so cars are half on the pavement, half in the street, rendering this part of Stapleton Road effectively one lane, causing congestion as cars have to pause to let each other pass. Likewise, buses are getting stuck in resultant traffic. This has been the case for the 6 months I've lived in the area. The failure to act on this means that private car ownership is being prioritised over sustainable transit like walking, cycling and taking buses. It's inefficient and unsustainable. One suggestion is that the empty, gated road next to Stapleton Road station be converted to allow residents with permits to park, which means locals both have somewhere to park and the footpaths aren't jammed with cars. Alternatively, the Eastgate centre carpark is rarely full; residents could be offered parking permits for there.

  • I urge you to please report these motorists to the police. The council can’t do anything about it:

    They are breaking the law by: 1. Driving on the pavement 2. Causing a dangerous obstruction to pedestrians

    Call 101. Option 5. Option 2. Option 1. Be sure to get an “incident reference number” so that you can follow this up.
