Reader's photograph showing double yellow lines marked around parked car in Uckfield

Your say: New double yellow lines in Uckfield

Our independent columnist Observer on Saturday said the new double yellow lines in Uckfield were worthless without enforcement.

Here are some of your views from our Facebook and emailed contributions.

The photograph above was supplied by a reader which shows the double yellow lines were put down around a parked car.

Signs had gone up before last week’s working warning that vehicles in the way would be removed.

However, at the corner of Alexandra Road and Keld Avenue in New Town, where there was a car in the way, the workmen put the lines either side of it.

On the Facebook page one person said of Observer’s column: “At last a voice of reason. This is what we’ve said all along. The yellow lines are useless without enforcement.”

They added: “If a few tickets were slapped on offending cars it would stop parking on the lines and also pavements because that has occurred as well this week – half on pavement half over lines.”

Double yellow lines working ‘brilliantly’


Another said the new double yellows in Bridge Farm Road were working “brilliantly”.

“We can drive round the bend with ease for the first time in 15 years+,” the Facebook user wrote.

Another noted there was a need for people to park “fairly” with consideration for others.

The question of how the new 30-minute time limits for High Street parking, to come in at the completion of the next stage of the roadworks, would be enforced was also raised.
