Gosh, that’s a shame. Thanks for the update.


#43

I know. :wink:


#44

Just seen two more culprits parked outside the JobCentre as I was walking back from the Library.


#45

I’ve looked for this, but haven’t managed to locate it so far. Is it attached to the building? Which floor? Definitely working?


#46

Not the best screen grab from Google - but almost lost in the trees in this old shot is the camera.

The output from the cam does not appear on any of the TfL Jam Cam feeds.


#47

Please tell me where to look - foreground? Lamp post? Building?


#48

Perhaps these hard balls should be used along the whole road to stop people parking on the pavement. Photo of them outside Forest Lodge.


#49

I have been updated this evening from a reliable local resident.

The camera has been removed.

It was still in-situ when our inspection of Dartmouth Road was carried out on 18 April 2018 - but 'tis no more.

Just when it might be useful …

So having spent ££££££ on a nice new landscaped pavement, we have no traffic wardens, no cameras … business as usual.


#51

Excellent and probably not too expensive or perhaps the ‘bells’ that are on some road corners. Or maybe cubes to allow the odd weary shopper to sit for a while.


#52

I know we’re all on the same page re: maintaining parking standards etc, but is it fair/a good idea to be posting people’s cars and number plates without a) their permission b) blurring the numbers?


#53

I don’t see a privacy issue here. It’s a public space and they are breaking a law. It’s very different from posting pictures of, for example, someone’s house. When you see the media blurring licence plates it’s because they are showing a well-known person with their vehicle.


#54

Public space, photography and posting of such is very much legal.


#55

You could always ask the illegal Parker’s if you can take their cars photo. I wouldn’t advise it though as I well know.


#56

Ok, lack of knowledge on my part.


#57

We shouldn’t have to become parking wardens, it’s the Council’s job.


#58

Agreed, but I think collecting evidence we can present to the council to ask therm to send the parking warden up the road more often is a good idea.


#59

Who in the Council? I can imagine the responses
“We don’t have resources to process this information”
“We don’t have a process to deal with this information”
Unfortunately - in common with other Boroughs - the pattern is to issue tickets on quiet streets where there is no shortage of parking. Where they are really needed - next to schools, on bus routes, high streets, etc. wardens are scarce. My hypothesis is that where there is a danger of altercation, they avoid the scene.

He’s still at it. Post Office van parked on the double yellows this morning despite there being MANY free bays. Unfortunately I could take a picture as I was driving.


#61

I’ll get back on the case tomorrow Rachael
