Chandler's Ford Parish Council


Verge Parking

People wrongly assume that by parking with two wheels off the road they are being courteous to road users but in reality this is far from the truth.

This not only encourages traffic to speed but such parked cars become obstacles to pedestrians with visual impairment and for parents with toddlers who may be forced to walk in the road!

In addition there is considerable damage caused to the verges where verge parking takes place and damage to underground services can also result. There are areas around Chandler's Ford where verge parking can result in a fixed penalty notice but vehicles users are politely requested not to park on the grass verges.
