INCONSIDERATE parkers in Barford could be left to pay the penalty.

Police say they have noticed a number of people parking on solid white lines and near to junctions on Church Street in recent weeks.

And they are warning residents and parents of pupils at Barford St. Peter’s Primary School to curb their bad parking or risk being fined as a result.

They say the parking is not only dangerous but also causes an unnecessary obstructions for other motorists.

A police spokesperson said: “We appreciate the school drop offs and pick ups are a busy time but efforts must be made to ensure parking is legal and considerate.

“We will issue advisory notices in an attempt to warn motorists of offences being committed but unfortunately, if the problem still exists and the team feel it necessary, Traffic Offence Reports may be issued.

“If any further vehicle violations are witnessed by police it is likely a £30 Traffic Offence Report will be issued and sent directly to the Central Ticket Office.

“This will not be displayed on the vehicle if unattended and a Notice of Intended Prosecution would then be sent via post to the registered keeper of the offending vehicle.”
