Woman Gives Up Driving Because Parking On Her Street Is So Bad


Woman Gives Up Driving Because Parking On Her Street Is So Bad

A woman says parking on her street is so difficult, she's given up driving altogether.

Residents in Sidney Street, Lincolnshire, have been vocal about the state of parking, which sees cars parked on both sides of the street, and they say the problem gets worse in the evenings.

Those living on the street believe that many of the cars parked there during the day belong to people who are visiting the nearby Masonic Hall.

Some locals say the situation is so bad that an emergency vehicle wouldn't be able to get down the one-way street if required, while resident Carol McNulty said she packed in driving when she moved there due to the parking situation.

When asked if she thought a fire engine could make its way down the street, McNulty told LincolnshireLive: "I am not sure, because the rubbish men always get down here, I'm not sure if it is a problem but in the evenings it could be difficult for a fire engine to get down here.

"When I came here, I gave up driving because there was no way I was going to park on this street."

Fellow resident Rowland Ekwulugo, 83, added: "I do not use a car because I am a pensioner, but do have visitors who have a car. It is a relatively narrow road so when it is busy it can be difficult.


"People are sensible though. When the rubbish men come, they move their cars onto the pavement."

Meanwhile, a resident in Birmingham has taken the unusual step of chaining their wheelie bin to the street to prevent people from parking outside.

Seemingly sick of not being able to find a parking spot outside their home, the unnamed resident took the unusual measure of padlocking their bin to the road in Handsworth, Birmingham, to prevent unwanted cars from taking up the space.


The bin was spotted by driver Suhad Miah, who was on the road looking for his own place to park.

Speaking to The Sun, Miah described the road as a 'nightmare'. He said: "That road is really bad for parking, you can't even drive down it... It is a congested area - but this was something different.

"I tried moving the bin, I just thought, okay, someone has put it in the middle of the road, but it pulled my arm back. I thought 'What's happening here?' I flipped the bin at an angle and I see it's been bolted to the ground. I just thought, 'Oh my days'."
