As a resident of Oaklea, Honiton, I was concerned to read the letter from the two people who feel it is ok to park in residential areas rather than pay to use designated car parks in Honiton. May I bring to their attention the Highway Code and the restrictions regarding parked cars? It is against the law to park on a bend, or within 10 metres ( 32 feet) of a road junction and finally that it is illegal to park where it would cause a danger to other road users, ie. creating a danger by restricting traffic on a residential road to only single carriageway. On several occasions lately it has been noted that had an emergency vehicle attempted access it would be virtually impossible. By all means park on the roadside, but do so with due consideration for others.OAKLEA RESIDENT(Name and full address supplied)
