The War On The Motorist Continues

Proposals for double yellow lines in London Road and New Place Road, Pulborough, will be discussed next week.

Cllr Frank Wilkinson, chairman of the Chanctonbury county local committee, said: “The proposals aim to solve the problem of vehicles parking on the New Place Road near the junction with the A29 London Road.

“Access is required at all times as the main road is a bus route. Parking impacts on the safe turning of traffic.”

Double yellow lines are evidently necessary at this location because some people are too lazy or ignorant to park considerately. The road is being blocked, and traffic is consequently backing up onto the rather busy A29.

Let’s see what headline the local free paper, The Resident, chose to give this story.

A new yellow peril?

Yes. Making it illegal for motorists to dangerously block roads with their parked vehicles is clearly a threat to us all.
