Insp Paul McCarthy said he was “disappointed” at the number of motorists “blatantly ignoring” the rules. He reminded motorists that the bay outside QD is for loading by goods vehicles only and not for use by private cars and that the bays along the High Street and Baker Street are short stay bays for 30 minutes only. Several of the tickets issued were to cars which had been parked in these spaces for more than two hours, taking spaces which are designed for shoppers away.
Insp McCarthy added further action days were planned for the coming weeks and urged motorists to comply with parking restrictions to avoid a £30 fine.
