A Beverley woman has started an online petition in protest at a minuscule parking notice on Church Lane in Hedon which catches out unaware motorists.
The notice which she says is “the size of a brick” and the faded painted line along the roadside, that looks white rather than yellow, means that people are unaware of the traffic regulation of ‘No Parking between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday’.
Diana Freeman parked down Church Lane having not seen the notice and received a £70 fixed penalty notice. She appealed the notice but it was upheld. Now the aggrieved motorist has taken to the internet and launched an online petition at Change.Org to ensure that people know about the traffic regulation at that location and are not caught out by what she claims is simply a “money spinner” for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Other ‘No Stopping’ signs further along Church Lane relating to the hours between 8.15am-9.15am and 3pm-4pm are very large and visible, and by comparison the sign on the church wall is indeed very small.
The petition which has already got 60 supporters calls for better signs and road markings at the location.
