Video - Council branded “bonkers” after painting parking lines both sides of narrow road

Have your say

A council was branded “bonkers” yesterday (mon) after roadside parking areas left the centre of the city street wide enough for a motorbike to pass - but too narrow for a CAR.

The residential road in Plymouth, Devon, has long parking bays stretching down either side of the street, next to the pavement. The parking scheme in Cross Park Avenue means the centre of the road is just a few feet wide, leaving the road totally unusable if the bays are filled. One resident said: “It’s totally bonkers. We need to park, but people also need to be able to use the road too.”
