Today, yet again, someone parked illegally on the Portway walking and cycling path. This time they blocked it – look at how much space this lorry took up!

Someone coming the other way told me they’d asked him to move because it wouldn’t safe to squeeze through the narrow gap. He had refused even though there was ample space for him to reverse into. He couldn’t care less that he was forcing them onto the road and into oncoming traffic. (And his attitude didn’t inspire trust that he would definitely look before manoeuvring.)

The majority of drivers use the clearly marked parking space with no difficulty. So DR & FA Ford, please ensure we can expect better from your drivers than this. If not we’ll have to carry on reporting them.
