Expect a fine if you park like this

IT’S A COMMON sight across the Borough – vehicles illegally parked on verges and pavements.

Badly parked car

An annoyed resident snapped the one pictured, which was on a bend and obstructing the footpath, forcing pedestrians into the road. Councillor Jon Butts said: “Drivers parking illegally causing nuisance for pedestrians and residents near Whiteley Primary School and local shopping centre are the subject of increased reporting for enforcement.”

 

Police can issue a summons for obstructing the pavement and Fareham Council can issue a fixed penalty for obstructing a dropped kerb.
