Parking News


Going after his second booking.


Someone has just been booked for parking on the pavement outside my house.
They won't be happy!

postscript. And someone further up the road towards the Millenium Clock.

It's like shooting fish in a barrel. I go through Hope regularly always one or two parked on the double yellows opposite the doctors.

Infinite revenue for the council.

Traffic News A483 Wrexham Chester

Apparently traffic was backed up all the way from Dobshill backwards to the Equestrian Centre past Hope this morning. This is an awful lot of traffic trying to avoid bedlam.

Ambulances - what sort of navigation do they use?

This afternoon there was an emergency in Chester Rd. The advance medic was on the scene. The ambulance was driving up and down Hawarden Rd....................

I use Google streets to find places I need to drive to. I usually do a dry run using my mouse.

One wonders what the ambulance service uses?
