rececent change to parking tags

Posted by Govanus on 22 April 2014 in English (English)

revising mainly parking restictions. mentor prevously updateed the tags to parking lane routes but this along with illegal parking problems is likely to confuse, so removed it all to lok at more appropriate parking lableing. If parking at the side of a garage road you create a blockage problem either for turning vehicals on one side or blocking a garage door on the other. were garages face each other both sides block doors. The police have already athorised garage owners that they can leagaly tow or dispose of vihicals in front of the doors without any warning. The areas are laid to allow 24hr access for large vehicals to the garages. if now used in a storage mode then it is only a loading stop that can be made and you need to be ready to move out of the way. vandalisum and rouge parking has dammaged some low walls and signs and illegal parking followed. originaly parking on the main road on the estate was also banned but recently this began to be increasingly ignored by residents not wanting to pay for garages so now a large parking scheme has been introduced but not on the garage lands as they are private and not adopted highways. I'll need to rethink the original tagging as I suspect the original is likely to be mass retagged again without local knowledge if I just revet it back to private like a houses drive
