Obstructive parking at junction of Station Road and Main Street.

The Highway Code states in rule 243 states 'DO NOT stop or park: opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space.' This allows drivers to use the junction with a greater degree of safety as drivers can see oncoming traffic. Vehicles turning into Main Street from Station Road unfortunately have a restricted view of traffic from the left, increasing the risk of a accident, as there are vehicles parked on Main Street within the 10 metre threshold to the left of the junction. There are also cars parked to the right of Station Road and within 10 metres of the junction, but this causes less of a problem, at least for drivers aware that they may be there when turning left into into Station Road as it is a blind corner. The junction is a low speed t junction in village location, but the risk is still there and the council may consider appropriate action is necessary.
