Thoughtless parking forces public on road!

PUBLIC complaints have prompted police to call on motorists to show some consideration for residents and those frequenting New Line at Richhill.

Armagh Rural East Neighbourhood Policing Team says motorists have been parking on pavements and close to junctions, which is blocking wheelchair and pushchair access and forcing the local community to take to walking on the road.

“Motorists may not realise the difficulty they are causing,” said PSNI Constable McKenna. “But the local community are becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of consideration being shown.

“We are working to find a solution to this problem, however, I would ask motorists to show consideration and give a little thought to the people who frequent this area.

“Motorists should make sure they are not parked in a dangerous position or causing an obstruction. Parking on zig-zag yellow lines or in a dangerous position is dealt with by way of a fixed penalty notice or report to the Public Prosecution Service.

“We will be conducting patrols in the local area to monitor the situation.”
