A DRIVER has called out residents to obey the new double yellow lines after witnessing 'dangerous' parking.

Allen Tyler from Bracknell has praised Bracknell Forest Council for installing double yellow lines on Nine Mile Ride, but says people are ignoring the road markings.

The road has always been "dangerous", explains Mr Tyler, as it has sharp left and right bends with its "rollercoaster characteristics make it impossible to see oncoming traffic which might be overtaking, thus precipitating a head on collision."

He said: "The ruling on yellow double lines states that no parking is permitted at anytime on the road, pavement or verges.

"Owners of cars who think they are safe as long as they are not parked on the carriageway (ie to the left or inside the double yellow line on the verge) are breaking the law and could face a £70 fixed penalty fine.

"Now of course, illegally parked cars pulling out over the brow of a hill or opening their doors present a similar problem albeit, precipitating a high speed rear end shunt or worse!"

The Bracknell resident said the cars parking on the grass verge between the Golden Retriever Roundabout and The Look Out are making it dangerous for road users.

He claims the pay and display car parking fees at the Lookout has 'exacerbated the problem', as people park on the road to avoid paying to visit Swinley Forest.

Allen said: "On the day I passed the carpark, a full sign had been posted at the entrance which probably exacerbated the problem."

"One solution, already employed close to the carpark entrance is to put heavy logs alongside the carriageway making it impossible to park."

Bracknell Forest Council said the double yellow lines were put in place due to the rise in cars parking "dangerously".

Cllr Chris Turrell, executive member for transport and planning, said: “It is disappointing that some drivers are choosing to ignore the restrictions. "I’d like to remind visitors to Swinley Forest that, should The Look Out car park be full, they should return home or travel elsewhere, instead of parking on verges. This poses a significant risk to other road users and visitors to the area, as well as to the driver and passengers of the car. Wherever possible, the council’s parking management contractor will patrol areas where parking restrictions are in place, engage with car owners and, where necessary, enforce parking regulations.”
