There are None, where I live. I've Got 2 Yellow lines on the Road outside of my House, Inconsiderate Drivers, Including 2 White Van Men regularly Park their Rust Buckets outside my House blocking me in (I park on my front Drive).
Several times I have rang the Police about this.
Their answer is, It takes up too much of their time doing the paperwork.
One Police officer I spoke to said that where he lives, He could Book 25 Car owners every day going to work and a different 25 going back home, But he would not because it would cause bad feeling.
The only answer to little poser is to Crush All Vehicles that park Illegally on Double Yellow Lines Full Stop.
"One Police officer I spoke to said that where he lives, He could Book 25 Car owners every day going to work and a different 25 going back home, But he would not because it would cause bad feeling."
But it won't stop the parking ticket agencies handing out 'bad feeling' in abundance via CCTV cameras.
A couple I know had their car broken into over the Christmas period, and when they asked the police to check the CCTV tapes, they were told point blank, "we don't have the resources to do this, it's not serious enough", and promptly gave a crime No and hung up when he vented his annoyance. But it seems there will be plenty of manpower available to deal out 'bad feeling'.
That's true, but will the local authority CCTV checkers bother to pass on footage of wrong doing in the criminal sphere if it's of low grade crime?
There is a very good opportunity here to use this technology towards a 'zero tolerance' crime target in society.
But, it seems that someone parking momentarily whist popping into the paper shop for the daily rag & fags is a greater threat to civilisation as we know it than hoodie muggers, that get let off, in case they have their human rights abused...
