Cambridgeshire Police at Ely Station have been listening to the public over growing concern’s about parking in the area.
Yesterday they posted a Facebook status showing vehicles parked near to corners of a road at Witchford Village College and members of the public took to many social media outlets to express their concern which has led to at least 9 tickets being issued today (shown above).
Their post reads:
Responding to public frustrations voiced here and on our Twitter feed, PCSOs have engaged with parking enforcement activity in Ely today.
Every ticket is a £30 fine for the driver.
– causing obstructions,
– parking in restricted areas,
– incorrectly parking in a bay (those drivers who park across two bays or inconsiderately stick out),
– parking in a taxi rank, or
– parking without a disabled badge.
This activity is going to continue, and it’s an example of what you can expect to see around school premises at pick up and drop off time.
