At the LLRA AGM, on 23rd May 2017, a number of residents raised concerns about the safety risks from parked cars on Carram Way at both the north and south junctions with Long Leys Road. At certain times, there is poor visibility due to parked cars, with traffic having to drive on the wrong carriageway which can create safety risks. This web page has been set up by the LLRA to identify the level of the problem.
If you are involved in an incident or near-miss on Carram Way as a result of parked cars then please use the comment form at the bottom of this page. Please provide the date and time of the incident together with a brief description of what happened and why you think it happened. Please don’t identify specific individuals or vehicles in your description. Ideally this should be supported by photographic evidence showing how cars were parked and how visibility was affected . Photographs can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The LLRA committee will review input over coming months to see what can be done in response. Your input may be used to support any proposed future changes.
Previous suggestions from residents to resolve the risks generated by parked cars include: painting double yellow lines, enforcement action against parking on the bend and introducing a one way system.
