Regular Illegal Parking

Reported in the Faded road markings category anonymously at 18:59, Tue 28 July 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2220877.

I travel on the Lower Bristol (A36) road every day and find that the Enterprise Car Hire company consistently park their vehicles on the road, on double yellow lines and at the bus stop causing traffic to stop. Cars pulling out of offices cannot see past these vehicles and I have narrowly missed several. The car hire company should keep all vehicles off the road or move to bigger premises. I do not understand as a main road into Bath why traffic enforcement officers do not monitor or take action for companies clearly breaking the law. Enforcement offier monitor the surrounding residential roads because I have seen them so I do not understand why this dangerous situation is allowed to continue

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 07:53, Wed 26 August 2020

  • This issue has not been resolved and the car hire company continues to flout the law by parking vans and cars in the bus stop and on the double yellow lines causing an obstruction on the road for cars pulling out of nearby business or coming the other way. Pictures were taken today and yesterday

  • 2nd September 2020. It is clear that either no action is being taken or that the company responsible does not care - Why is this company allowed to break the law and put the public at risk by consistently parking illegally? If a major accident occurs everyone will run for cover, let's avoid a fatal accident and ensure that concerned company follows the road laws that apply to us all.

  • Happens daily. I wish enforcement action would be taken.

  • This still happens regularly, even when the company car park is visibly empty. Given that you were already provided with clear evidence of a recurring breach of the law, I have to wonder if you are being "incentivised" to ignore the issue. Perhaps a bit of publicity would create a situation where it becomes worth your while to act?

  • 6 months since this was first reported (although it started long before that) and still happening...
