Parking in Lymm - clamp down on the real culprits
3:21pm Thursday 12th July 2012 in Letters
I SYMPATHISE with last week’s correspondent Kevin O’Brien who was fined for forgetting to display a ticket in the free Pepper Street car park in Lymm.
I too have been fined for the same thing, a simple mistake which is costly. What frustrates me even more as a regular visitor to the village is that it’s all very well the wardens blitzing the car park but what about the rest of the village?
Last Saturday it was mayhem with lazy motorists parking on the yellow lines outside Pepper Street car park to get to the cash point, the yellow lines outside Sainsbury’s, the yellow lines by the lower dam, the yellow lines outside the Spread Eagle and the yellow lines outside the sweetshop on Eagle Brow.
All parked because they are too idle to find somewhere sensible but they are the real nuisances by causing obstructions. Do they get tickets from the warden? No.
I suggest if the council wants to make some real money it looks to the other parts of the village – they would have a field day.
