DRIVERS in Warrington are being warned they will be fined for inconsiderate parking.

And readers have been telling us about the roads with the worst offenders.

Drivers who block footpaths stopping wheelchair or pram access could face the penalty and officers have warned they will be checking areas more regularly after receiving complaints.

Last month officers in Whittle Hall warned drivers they could be fined £30 before slapping a fixed penalty notice on a car on Stockdale Drive.

It follows drivers being warned in Birchwood and another motorist being fined in Bewsey.

A Whittle Hall police spokesman said: "Please be aware that inconsiderate parking will cost your bank balance £30 this includes fully blocking the footpath so that it stops wheelchair and pram access.

"Please think of others and their safety.

"We will be checking the area more regularly after receiving complaints."

"If you are parking along a narrow road, where parking wholly on the road would stop other cars, and particularly emergency vehicles, from getting through, then it is a sensible option to park partially on a pavement, providing there are no parking restrictions and providing you are not blocking a wheelchair user or pram from using the pavement.

"If there are restrictions, or your parking would cause wheelchair users or people with prams to have to walk into the road, then you should find somewhere else to park."

If you spot unlawful parking on yellow lines, have school parking issues or you're requesting new single/double yellow lines you can report it to the council by filling out an online form.

If there is a vehicle blocking a road which could potentially and immediately cause a danger to others, please call Cheshire Police on 101.
