Plenty of cars parked around Manly St Lower Ince. these cars are taking up spaces which should be available for residents who live there.

Are the cars parked off the road? If they are, they don't need to be taxed/mot'd or insured.

" cars parked around Manly St "

focus on "around", not "on".

A few years ago there was a little Ford Ka parked opposite where I work, on the road. It was there for several months, never moved, and one tyre was flat down to the rim. Parking there is at a premium, so I got online and emailed the Police and gave them all the information they'd need. I'd already established that it was neither taxed, nor MOTd. Unfortunately, the Police said that I should inform the Council (?) to take it away, but I argued that they would be able to locate the registered owner with a PNC check and that it was suspicious.

Anyway, I gave up with Police and reported it to the DVLA who came within a week and removed it.

If the cars are parked legally, there's nothing anyone can do, and I know how frustrating it can be when folk park their vehicles in places other than where they live for their own convenience.

Only today, I was blocked in by two selfish women, one about six inches in front of me, and one about 18 inches behind me. It was the only place I could park to get to my place of work and I try not to use somebody else's space, but they live there, and I only work there. I had to juggle to get my car out of the space and find something more suitable and then, when I'd done that, about an hour later, another car blocked me in again.

C'est la vie. It's a sign of the times, unfortunately.

Parking is becoming a problem. I appreciate that anyone can park anywhere on roads/streets that have no parking restrictions and I can appreciate that people on visits to friends, family, even shops, etc need to park.
But I do have a bit of a gripe. In Orrell at the top of East Mount and West Mount, during the week workers/contractors park their cars there and are picked up to work, later dropped off either on the adjacent motorways or other constuctions. This has happened for many years. Yes, it is legal for them to park here. However, the Mount estate is very clean and tidy... apart from the top of E and W Mount; where the pavements and gutters are littered with cans, bottles, fast food containers, fag ends, etc. Oh, I hear you say... can you prove these workers/contractors are littering? Well, apart from the great probability percentage, I have actually witnessed the littering. On one occassion I challenged the 'louts' in thier vehicle who responded with something to effect of "What the **** has it to do with you!" Not a nice response to a person of my age (70) who had been pleasant and informed them that there is a council bin within a few metres that is very convenient for for their litter. Obviously I wasn't going to get into a huge debate with such nasty and unthoughtful individuals, but I did give them a piece of my mind and actually (to show an example) picked up some litter and put it into the bin. Actually I frequently stop to put pick up the litter as it's a first impression that people get to a rather nice and tidy estate.
So, if you are one of the people who cares to park (legally accepted) please put your rubbish in the bin or take it home with you and respect not just the estate but the town too. There will be decent parkers too (appreciated) - so please tell your mates to be more considerate. Thanks

If you report an abandoned car to the council, they stick a 7 day notice on to it, informing the owner that they have 7 days to remove it, and if it is there after 7 days the council take it away

try London if you think it's bad here. There are absolutely pedantic restrictions everywhere and mainly hidden, so actually a trap. I was asked to visit a nature reserve in Lambeth (by Lambeth Council). I scrupulously do my homework but was hit with a 120 quid penalty for accessing a 'low traffic area'. I've been on the Google Streets and surveyed the whole of the estate... I can't find the notices or cameras. I did a Google search for reviews and guess what... yes, it is a trap and Lambeth Council are making a fortune from penalty notices with their obscene trickery. Also they have reconfigured traffic management to trick you into a bus lane or other restricted lane. Yes I got another fine for stopping on a bus stop. I couldn't get into the outside lane comming round a bend and the traffic signal changed to red. So the camera showed me 'parked' or stationary in a bus stop. This was Crayford which I'm very familiar with and been there numerous times. As I say... just a bloody annoying trap. So if you are driving in London these days be aware... be very, very aware!
