People are baffled by the narrow gap between these parking spaces

A council was branded ‘bonkers’ yesterday after roadside parking areas left the centre of the city street wide enough for a motorbike to pass – but too narrow for a car.

The residential road in Plymouth, Devon, has long parking bays stretching down either side of the street, next to the pavement.

The parking scheme in Cross Park Avenue means the centre of the road is just a few feet wide, leaving the road totally unusable if the bays are filled.

One resident said: ‘It’s totally bonkers. We need to park, but people also need to be able to use the road too.’

Another local said: ‘Now cars can park both sides, but how the hell are you meant to drive in the centre?

‘It’s funny yes, but once again the council is wasting our cash and taxes.’

Plymouth City Council said the zones on both sides of the road were introduced more than ten years ago but had been re-painted over the years following fading or resurfacing.

City Council Leader Ian Bowyer said: ‘The controlled parking zone in Cross Park Road, Cross Park Avenue and Cross Park Way is not new – it was introduced over 10 years ago, at the specific request of residents.

‘Permit holders are given the flexibility of being able to park anywhere within the marked areas, while using common sense to allow space for their neighbours and other drivers to get past."

lol So once your car is parked in the middle of a few you need to wait for the ones in front or behind you to move so you can get out, you wonder about people who make these types of decisions :ROFLMAO:

You wonder even more how an Ambulance or Fire Engine gets to an emergency in the road.

'Use common sense'! Have you seen society at the minute? Common sense is not as common as the name suggests.
