Wow, what next — motorists treating public highways as car parks? Everyday life in Trafford.

Residents complain they are denied the opportunity of causing traffic congestion outside own home.

How bizarre that designated car parks in Urmston, occasionally used for artisan markets and car boot sales, normally lie empty as vehicles park anywhere except there.

A bright idea might be to encourage more congestive danger by removing yellow lines and authorizing road / pavement parking everywhere, avoiding bother of resident parking permit schemes.
