Long-term dangerous parking

Reported via desktop in the Car parking category anonymously at 13:45, Fri 28 October 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3921269.

In the location stated - the junction of Harewood Gardens and Hardwick Court, as per the photo - there has been a large vehicle parked continually for approximately a month. The vehicle is parked in a particularly bad location, and appears to be in contravention with the Highway Code. Specifically, it is parked across a junction and on a bend (both contraventions of rule 243). It is also parked against the flow of traffic in contravention of rule 239. On numerous occasions since parking has become more commonplace here, there have been close calls in terms of near-miss vehicle collisions as vehicles approaching from different directions on Harewood Gardens cannot easily see each other, and also are forced to simultaneously look for vehicles, crossing pedestrians and other road users coming from the opposite direction and out of Hardwick Court. If there is an increased demand for road parking in this area (which is largely out of character with the development) then greater road markings (e.g. double yellow lines) appear to be required to more clearly prohibit parking where it is dangerous to do so. Although there has been a general increase in parking on this junction beyond a single vehicle, it is also possible that the white van in the photo has been abandoned as it has not moved in some time, making this poor parking behaviour all the more disappointing.
