11 June (Part 2) - Highway robbery

A Welling reader who saw yesterday’s bus stop pictures cajoled me into looking at the Highway Code. This is what it says about parking in dangerous places…
Bus Stop

243. DO NOT stop or park
• at or near a bus or tram stop or taxi rank
• opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space
• opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked vehicle

Which makes it fairly clear that parking near a junction or bus stop or opposite traffic islands is not a good idea.

Bexley council in its wisdom has seen fit to break all three safety rules - but it provides another revenue stream which takes priority over road safety.
