My wife and I took our five-month-old daughter for our usual walk down on the seafront on Sunday.
We noticed The Pavilion had a craft fair and we decided to have a look. We found crossing the road to the traffic island nearly impossible as blue badge holders had parked on double yellow lines on either side of the entrance to The Pavilion car park on the opposite side of the road.
We found it really hard to see if there was any traffic coming and vice-versa and we did have a couple of near misses.
'Disabled' blue badge holders must learn that, while they are allowed to park on double yellow lines, the lines themselves are there for a reason. They are not there to annoy. They are there because it's dangerous to park there as it causes a restriction to the traffic flow and decreases drivers' visibility.
