A Bushey resident has expressed his concerns about people parking on Elstree Road as an elderly woman tries to get past two parked cars.
The street doesn’t have parking restrictions but cars that park on the pavement near the Bushey Heath care home has a knock on effect for the elderly residents.
Malcom Ellis, who lives near Elstree Road, believe that people park there to use the local synagogue and pilates class near The Three Crowns Pub.
He said: “It’s daily, the main reason is users are attending the local pilates studio next to the Three Crowns but I saw a woman park her car and then hop on the bus to the town in Edgware. I’ve sent emails to council and police but I don’t think much will be done.
“Some people park for the synagogue on a Saturday and it’s on both sides of the road so traffic flow is hindered enormously causing tailbacks and congestion.
“The people inconvenienced the most are the elderly, mainly from the nearby care homes, parents with push chairs and of course motorists trying to get on with their journey.”
Leader of the Council, Morris Bright MBE said: “There is a growing problem with people parking on roads, pavements and verges in an inconsiderate way. It’s unfair and anti-social and often unduly affects those with mobility issues and parents with prams.
“We will continue to work with our residents, our wardens and the local police where necessary to crack down further on this behaviour and would ask those who park on Hertsmere’s roads and pavements to do so considerately.”
