Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

There are a large amount of vehicles parked illegally and obstructively on both sides of the road. including:

*parked on solid white lines *parked on verge *obstructing vision *parked too near junctions/layby exits *parked on the road on both ways.

All of this is obstructing traffic in both ways and there are cars attempting to manover, on a very busy road.

Pedestrians are also trying to cross the road on both ways.

They are going to Warleigh Weir, the owner has asked them not to park by car & use alternative modes of transport.

Recommend: remove vehicles, patrols of road and helping people on/off verges.
