During our survey, we received dozens of comments and photographs about this specific vehicle and several others which park blocking the pavement against double yellow lines and immediately on top of the junction between Hollingbury Crescent and Adams Close.
MF17 PYV is recognised as one of the most prevalent and problematic of the visitors to this property.
This Kia can be found blocking the pavement in this manner most weekend evenings.
The junction is particularly difficult to navigate by car due to the position on the hill; however, vehicles like this one parking here make is extremely dangerous, particularly as they park like this through the evening and night (when visibility is reduced yet further).
This also blocks pedestrian access - particularly those using wheelchairs or pushing buggies. These pedestrians are instead forced to pass around this Sportage in the middle of the road rather than on the pavement, which this vehicle driver has decided to block.
One resident reported an incident where the (female) driver had aggressively mounted the curb whilst they were walking on the pavement in this area before honking at them and gesturing for them to get out of their way (on the pavement).
This vehicle does not - and has never - displayed a blue badge whilst parked in this manner. However, even then, parking in this manner and so close to the junction would remain illegal.
It is understood that the Hollingbury Crescent resident encourages their visitors to park in this manner (instead of finding suitable parking elsewhere) simply due to the fact that parking is difficult in the area.
