Try Market St and Station St for starters.

The lady that runs the antique shop next to the real eating company, parks her large black 4x4 on the pavement opposite her shop for hours at a time with a disabled badge on the dash board. Thought you had to loading to park there but I guess she's allowed to do this when she displays her badge.

Fisher Street. Outside the takeaways in the evenings. Nearly always one or two numpties parked up collecting their grub, making it difficult for vehicles to get past - and forcing pedestrians to walk into road to get past. Why not use the car park, and walk a few yards?!!

It can be a problem on the Nevill. Most of the houses seem to have at least 2 cars, and the roads are only wide enough to park on one side.
There seem to be phases where a lot people park right on the pavement outside their houses, forcing pedestrians to walk in the road. Last night, one was parked on the pavement leaving only just enough room to get a medium sized car through, anyone in a van would have had to back up to the corner and go round the block.
Years ago, the fire brigade would come round every now and again and put flyers on offending cars telling them that they were preventing access by emergency vehicles, but I haven't seen them do that for a long while.

Try the roads outside South Malling school during the school runs. The cars park on the grass verges in Barn Road, leaving deep tracks in the grass that turn to mud.
If anyone from the council is reading this, any chance of putting bollards up to stop this happening????

Try up by the Black Horse in the evenings, round the Grammar school at pick up and drop off time, Fisher street, Friars Walk at random times of day. The list goes on.

Station Road. Just look at the cracked pavements from heavy goods lorries parking on the pavement. Got a flood/damp in your basement? Always look for cracked paving or utility/media company repairs... And if you try to speak with ESCC they do a survey, then prioritise jobs - i.e. find an excuse to do nothing.

Of course the Parking Wardens do nothing to get the traffic moving, just issue tickets ! This time of year the high street is full of parked delivery vans and nothing done about it ? No traffic management in Lewes. Just loudly sound your horn !!

Market Lane behind the Clock Tower gets me...why on Market days cant stall holders park their vans in the cark park and ferry their goods across the road or at least park with some consideration for people needing to using the pavement which is already very narrow. They block the road and look at people trying to get by as though they are causing the problem. Only last week someone created a tail back into Market Street just because she hadnt bothered to park in tight by the back of the Crown and another one with a van was parked on the pavement - they both had trolley wheels so could easilly have ferried their goods to the car park but expected everyone to wait and old people and mums with pushchairs to walk round them - totally selfish!! Rant over :0(

What about all the cars parked outside the Shanaz blocking up the High St, or making it very difficult to get vehicles past. Madness
