Anyone who stands at the top of Park Street will very quickly notice one thing. That’s the number of vehicles that turn into the road from the A30 and then drive back out again because it’s not a through road for general traffic.
The other day I stood there and took the following photo. (It’s not a very good picture, but I wasn’t after artistic merit. It’s just that several cars were driving into Park Street at the time. Note the black car on the left. I thought there was fair chance that I’d see it again…)
And, yes, it was only a matter of seconds before I took this second photo. There’s the black car driving out again.
This happens so often that a helpful council would put up signs to tell drivers that it’s not a through road. Of course, our local councillors might alert the council to the problem too…
(We’d put this information on Cllr Chapman’s blog. But the blog won’t allow the Eye to enter comments – we’ve tried for months – although others can. We wonder why – is someone frightened of the Eye???)
