Abandoned Cars

I know the roads aren't brilliant but there seems to be a lot, in particularly dangerous places. Offham Road at the top of Landport making visibility difficult when leaving the estate being one. Another is Mount Harry Road by the shops at the junction with Highdown. Now I see some idiot has left their estate car parked right on the bend at the junction. FFS.

and....... as a driver you should be prepared to expect something round the bend and adjust your driving, ,,better that the vehicle has been abandoned rather than running someone over or joining them for dinner in their front room

Errrr, they've possibly been abandoned because loss of traction made it impossible to move them anywhere else. Mr C-T almost had to leave his van in a very awkward place the last time he drove it on Thursday. Luckily, another car moved and he was able to roll back into a parking space.
I heard on the radio today that where people had had to leave their cars on the ungritted A229 in Kent, they've been charged £150 for having them towed away and had to go all the way to Sheppey to get them back.

'concerned motorist' is right. The point is that those of us driving on supposedly 'impassable' roads then have the added problem of trying to avoid cars that have been abandoned and sometimes left for several days in daft places.
With a bit of effort most cars can be moved-on to better places surely? It's not that hard.
