PARKING AND BUSINESS PERMIT CHARGE

Hounslow Cycling supports the proposed adoption of Band A parking charges in Hounslow.

Our members agree that breaches of parking and waiting restrictions are widespread in the borough. Cyclists are all too often endangered by motorists who have parked in breach of restrictions. Bad parking forces us to pull out from our natural line into motor traffic that is not running smoothly. This in turn causes close passes by both overtaking and oncoming cars and vans with the added risk of “dooring”. We agree that increasing the penalties will help to deter breaches of restrictions. We would like to see stricter enforcement too.
