days ago an accident on Abbey Road, Belvedere left a car on the pavement, since
when it has been vandalised further. Retrieval is difficult because it
is on the pavement behind free parking bays well used from around 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
by commuters to Abbey Wood station. Before 7 a.m. this morning two uniformed
parking enforcement officers were busy placing barricades and writing out
parking suspension notices. For reasons unknown one arrived in a Bexley council
van and the other in a small car.
The strange thing is that although the barricade has taken out four or five parking places from before 7 a.m. this morning the restriction doesn’t apply until tomorrow, which begs several questions…
• If someone parks behind the barricade today will they get a ticket?
• Have two people made a mistake with the date?
• Is Bexley council putting commuters to maximum inconvenience just to save them the effort of coming out early tomorrow?
