Car Parked on Pavement

Park on the Road

Parish Council asks all residents and their visitors to please park on the road. We continue to receive complaints from pavement users about inappropriate parking. Many motorists think that parking on the pavement helps avoid traffic congestion but forget the impact on pavement users. The main road where pavements are shared with cyclists (Comberton Road) is the biggest problem. In fact parking on the road would be far better as it slows traffic down. Recent MVAS data show speeds of 38 mph (v85) on Comberton Road at Foxcote with a top speed of 77 mph. Other areas of the village where vehicles park on the pavement are the High Street. Again parking on the road would reduce traffic speed and High Street is another road where we receive complaints about speeding vehicles.

Many thanks for being considerate to pavements users and many thanks for helping reduce speeds on through roads in Barton.
