Driving up and down this road is becoming a serious pain in the arse. What wally in the council planned the parking bays down each side of the road? It's like a frigging slalom course and is causing considerable congestion....

I remember the early days just before the parking scheme started many residents in Prince Edwards Road complaining because even though many of them parked in their driveways they would still have to pay the annual because the highway is defined as property boundary to property boundary including the pavement. I would park in the road too presented with the same. Cant say I blame the residents at all on that one even though the road is now a slalom.
Take a closer look at the parking in Park Road. The bays are so close to the junctions at both ends that you cannot help but meet another motorist entering along the centre of the road. Fantastic planning! Safety discarded for the additional income.
Then we come to the Offham Road end of Prince Edwards Road. I cannot concieve how many drivers pass over the 2 NO ENTRY notices painted in the road about 1 metre high to then drive through the no entry signs and on to exit on to the Offham Road on a blind bend that most motorists approach from both ends of Offham Road at well over the 30mph limit. There will be a serious accident there one day.
To repeat myself form previous postings it is not just youngsters either.

Yeah I know what you mean guys. This road is virtually a single lane road all the way down. The more cars on the road every year mean that this problem is in no hope of improving. On another moaning point, I had to let more than 10 cars thru on prince edwards and not one of those snobby pr*cks thanked me! Whinge over.....
