So the council have painted the biggest Bus Stop lines ever right outside my house.

The road my house is on is fairly narrow and our building is a flat. There are 10 car owners in this building and a few weeks ago they put double yellow lines down to prevent parking. This caused alot of bother for us to try and find somewhere to park our cars. There was space but it was a squeeze, and some cars have moved to the side street which is already full of cars. It's also even more narrow than this "Main road" and is a nightmare to drive down.

We were given no warning about the double yellow lines and from what I know the council DO have to send you a letter telling you that they will be putting them down and give you an opportunity to dispute the action, this never happend. Complaints were filed against the council from everyone in the building and surrounding area and nothing was done

Fast forward to this morning and now what little space was left is now all bus stop. From one end of the Double yellows to the other, with a gap. Again no letter or any notice so more complaints will be filed against them.

So we have nowhere to park for at least 500 meters now

Pictures:





The space is big enough for a 2 door VW polo. You can see the green/gold car up at the top which gets the other available space before more lines so people can get in and out of driveways.

Don't you love idiot councils?

No he's American, the shock of British tradition would most likely kill him and he'd probably shoot you ... on a less xenophobic note that really does suck, good luck getting rid of it.

And just think how much you pay them in council tax for the honour of having your life made more awkward by assholes.

Buy some black spray paint and paint over the lines in the middle of the night.

Do this.
If the lines aren't present, they can't fine you [or you can, but able to appeal - and WIN! A lot of people do this].

We all usually park on the one side. The Jeep usually puts two wheels on the pavement, my brother does that with his Corsa too. The jeep parked there tonight was done to make drivers complain about the lack of space to park. If they moan they cant go down the road because of the bus stop markings preventing parking the council will have to do something.

The less cars parking on ****ing pavements the better.

If you have more cars than your house and drive can accomodate, you need to re-evaluate things.

(Not anyone here personally, but a general statement).

^ Not every house has a drive or garage, you know.


No, which is what I mean - they need to evaluate what is going on and get something for their "needs".

Cars with no drives or garages and yet 3 cars.. Just silly. Really really.

So if you can't afford a house with a drive, you shouldn't have the right to own a car? Dude, what the ****?

Because the street's so narrow and there's parking allowed on both sides of the street, the stops have to be that long for the bus to be able to get to beside the curb, don't they?

But the whole layout of that street is retarded. Way too narrow to be a bus lane anyway.

I live in a flat or "apartment" It's not just one or two houses. Quite a few people live in this building and it would be impractical for us to share cars.

Exactly. Jackolas, your argument makes no sense. Buildings consisting of apartments that do not have driveways lead to several cars being parked upon pavements.

It is not the fault of the residents, if you hate it that much, either pay for them to relocate, protest to the government about it, or just ****ing deal with it and continue doing the oh so labouring task of stepping to the side around them.

The bus route has been in operation for years and never needed any kind of bus lane. Why now with no information and only at these stops? no other bus stop on this road has a specific bus stop, just the old sign post.

Wow! How long have bendy busses been in Dundee?

On a lighter note. At least you don't need to walk far to get a bus.

Fender Telecaster Blacktop
Epiphone Les Paul Negative
