I have decided to now present the weekly statistics in table form as regular readers will be used to them.
|Cases heard||30||43||70||Higher than normal|
Now for the details of the 4 cases which hinged on signs this week. the motorist won them all.
1. The sign in the Lodge Lane car park that tells you the market day restriction (Fridays & one Saturday a month) faces out so cannot be seen by a car driver. That is not good enough to count.
2. A residents' bay sign was erected after the car was parked (you could see how shiny and new it was) and given that the motorist travels abroad a lot they couldn't be expected to check on their car.
3. A parking restriction sign was sited so near to the bus stop that it would often be obscured by buses and so that was found to be not clear enough.
4. Foliage was obscuring a business bay sign in West Heath Avenue (+ where are the businesses down there?) and that meant the sign didn't count.
A 70% win rate for motorists this week was really good. Well done everybody. Keep fighting the good fight.
