Parking in Dawlish is a Joke, I have reported a van parked on the Pavement, and  Bus Stop near Lanherne since last October 2016 and it still parks every day.

@UPWITHIT that'll probably be the one that's working opposite.  originally it always parked on the pavement outside, no idea how he got away with it. 

We have a sharp corner where I live where idiots park on.  We had an ambulance come to pick someone up and they have to attempt to reverse 4 times before they could get out (couldn't use the turning bay as people parked there!).  One of the cars on the corner got smashed up one evening, no idea if it was personal or not, but they still park there.  This is on housing estates with fairly wide roads.  I dread to think was it's like on some of the new ones.

The problem with people with this sort of attitude, that being the inconsiderate motorist, is that you are likely going to get verbally/physically assualted if you have words with them as to why they should not park there.

Why not get a push bike and ride at speed into the back of their vehicle, it is a cycle path along there. Should give them something to moan about when they see the dents and broken window on their vehicle. Obviously wear lots of protective gear when performing this type of activity!,

Just kidding, I would not condone this type of activity... it would be anti social and annoying like parking on a foot/cycle path.

Get a life people, nobody uses the cycle path for anything else so why not take advantage of the extra parking space

The Council paint an image of a cycle onto a pathway that was previously pedestrian use only, and bingo they've created a "new" cycle path, and a whole lot of conflict.

The offence is obstruction of a cycle path or lane the PCSO,s cant deal with it they have had there traffic powers removed, the CEO,S cant deal with it its not in there remit, that leaves the Police now they can deal with it but do they want to i doubt they have the time.

A friend who works on the highways tells me the council can issue a code 49 PCN for parking wholly on a cycle track or lane or the police can issue a FPN for either driving on a cycle track or for obstruction of the highway. The law is section 21 road traffic act 1988 and 137 highway act 1980.

Now thats great parking, zig zags and how about those wanting to cross the road, say a wheelchair user who needs to use the drop kerb but whos view is blocked to the right by a very inconsiderate driver

OMG the vigilante brigade are really out and around in town. So what time of day was the Geralds van photo taken, looks like very early to me.

Its just a shame the real crimes and other more important issues get overlooked.

@leatash

 

Nobody in their right mind would use that drop kerb (in front of the van) to cross the road.

If they wanted to cross the road, they will use the propper crossing point behind the van that also has a drop kerb with the knobbly bits.

Far too many people cross the road in dangerous places as they cant be bothered to go a couple of extra yards/metres to use the crossing.

Carer the point is the van is parked illegaly it doesn't matter how you cut it the van driver is in the wrong and it is a endorsable offence 3 points on his or her licence and a hefty fine.

The same vigilante brigade will be the same people that moan about the lack of shops and facilities etc in town. What do they expect the shop keeper to do to unload his van, park up Bartons and carry the stuff down on his back so some scum bag can rob him and spray acid in his face. If TDC hadnt surrounded the entire town in double yellow lines and stupid cycle paths that apparently you cant stop on either then there may not be this problem. Sick to death of minority groups claiming priority over everything and everyone else.

I didn't realise that pedestrians were a minority group.

The delivery driver for the ice cream parlour parks in the loading bay in Piermont Place and sack barrows it over, it's pure laziness on the part of the driver a bit of hard work never hurt anyone. My second point is everyone keeps on about getting acid sprayed in there face and to my knowledge since 1984 its the only incident of its type i dont remember anything similar happening.
