In February we launched a web-site where you could register complaints about parking in your village. As promised we have taken the information that you gave us and have run our first two crackdown days.
During these days we ring-fenced our PCSOs and deployed them only to the places where you told us parking was a problem. Before deploying our PCSOs I took a careful review of the information and it was clear to me that a lot of the parking being complained about wasn’t necessarily illegal. This is due to some confusion about the difference between a Highway Code Rule and the rules established by the Road Traffic Act. Without getting too technical, there are some rules in the highway code which are ‘should not’ and some that are ‘must not’. Only the latter can be legally enforced.
