Stop bleating and obey the law

Reading Mr Craven’s letter about the driving and parking in the local area, it could have been my letter.

He hits the nail on the head because you get sick and tired of motorists bleating about fines imposed for breaking the law, calling it a cash cow for the council and so on.

The answer is simple, don’t speed, don’t park like you own the place.

We will shortly lose the use of our legs if we don’t walk the few metres from legal parking areas.

The only thing I would have added is the danger from the Lycra louts on their bikes zipping along pavements and totally ignoring any references to the Highway Code.
