Tonker has a reasonable understanding of parking and obstruction and advises accordingly. However, the police appear to bypass serious obstruction. As an example, travelling west from Wigan through Pemberton just through the lights at the White Swan... there are a few fast food shops. Every day there are are cars and vans parked outside, partly (almost entirely) on the pavement and partly on the road on double yellow lines. Double yellows are there for a reason - particularly safety. The parking causes obstruction to large vehicles but also prevents prams and wheelchairs from a clear passage.. forcing them to divert onto a busy highway. There are several car parks within a very short walking distance so why do they choose to endanger peoples lives and why do they continue to park irresponsible? It's because they are either lazy buggers who eat regularly fast food and really could do with the exercise but can't be bothered or they have no concept of safety for other human beings.
