Firstly, councillors etc. who introduce resident only parking on the queens highways, should be dragged out from behind their desks, shot in front of their families then slung back into their office and the office set alight.  :)
If you buy a house with no off street parking, don't fickin moan and whine when someone who has paid all their motoring related taxes, parks on the road at the front of your house.
Secondly, double yellow lines were a good idea originally. Preventing dickheads from parking in dangerous places etc.
However, in more recent times, councils or private companies acquire some waste land in every town, and charge a small fortune for the privilege of parking on it for  while.
Then they paint double yellow lines all over every piece of road where you might otherwise park, so you have no other option but to pay them.
Its legalised extortion, and those involved should be dragged out etc etc.........  :)

I sense you are becoming more tolerant and liberal in your old age, Mr Bitz. ::) ::) ::) ::) ;)

I always thought that double yellow lines were to stop parking in dangerous or bottleneck areas. Here in Bury st. Eds. they are all parked on by people with disabled badges. ::)

Where I live double yellow lines are almost totally ignored. One particular street is very narrow but has a number of take-aways that would instantly go out of business if parking restrictions were actually enforced. I would add that going through red traffic lights is also "normal"  :o

That's why you should always stop for a green light, so all those jumping the red one don't hit you. ::) ::) ::) :o :o :o

Yes the Welsh do seem to treat double yellows as an advisory....  ::)

One thing I often see which really gets my goat, is where you have a narrow street with terraced houses on both sides.  One side will have double yellows and the other unrestricted parking, but people will insist on parking outside their house on the double yellows (half on the pavement) even if there are plenty of spaces on the other side of the road.  It creates a pinch point and is just idleness!  >:(

Aaaaah!  :D  ;D

I suspect I'd be far less of a pauper if I had no space for "projects". ::)

This is the crazy thing about 'planet London'

Some doctor/lawyer/banker pays £1.4 million for a crappy 3 bed terrace in a posh part of London only to leave his Aston/Bentley/Porsche parked in the gutter for any passing ne'er do well to drag a screwdriver across.
