Traffic Wardens to hit the streets. Where should they target?

Traffic Wardens to hit the streets. Where should they target?

It's six weeks until Telford Traffic Wardens or Enforcement Officers start handing out tickets on the streets, and sometimes pavements, of our town.

The five officers have been selected and will start work on 31st Jan 2020, targeting the parking black spots of our borough.

Until then, the parking enforcement has been left to the police, who have concentrated on schools and crossings. These enforcement officers will follow up on reports of local black spots from members of the public.

Where would you start?

      Residential areas where cars are parked on footpaths and on junctions. Disabled and family parking bays that are misused.

    Any school at collection time, around the town center at weekends and whenever there is a major event on at the international center, and Ironbridge when its sunny. Thats the obvious ones of course.

    They shouldn’t target housing estates with inadequate parking but it’ll be easy money. The council is creating the problem for this money making scheme by approving housing developments like Lawley with inadequate parking provision.

    New Church Road Wellington at school run times people park on the junction of Holyhead road and turn in the road it’s extremely unsafe particularly in light of the fact there are small children around at these times!

    What about the appalling and selfish parking in the bus stop outside the Charlton school. So many near misses every day.

    All schools, Langley waiting on double yellows as their babies can’t cross the road to the main car parks – however this would be fixed more easily if there was also a pedestrian crossing!!!!

    1, Ironbridge I personally believed there was already wardens but clearly not it’s a daily battle to work to get around people parking on double yellows.

    2 Also in most housing estates as they double park stopping firengines and most emergency services and people getting home from work or even out to work.

    3 outside of schools

    And there is lots more places,
    Seem happy to ticket you a minute over your parking but people parking unsafe hasnt been a issue to the council for a long time so it’s about time but they have issues everywhere to sort.
