Motorists want warning signs on cycle track

Warning signs could come in useful along a cycle path on the A57, where a number of people are parking their cars illegally.

A number of keen fishers regularly leave their cars on the cycle path between Saxilby and a junction of Broxholme Lane in Lincolnshire, however they are being warned that they will be fined for doing so.

Currently, there are no warning signs along the stretch of path to alert motorists not to park there.

Speaking to This is Lincolnshire, PCSO Melanie Goodwill said: "We are aware of the parking in this spot and we have worked with the anglers to ensure they are out the way of the path.
"That said, anyone causing an obstruction with their vehicle is committing an offence and is at risk of a ticket."

Councillor Ray Sellars, who represents Nettleham and Saxilby on the county council, added: "There are no signs saying 'no parking', but it is illegal to park on the cycle track."

He said that a meeting between the fisherman and the council is needed to tackle the issue.

Last month, a group of 'flashmob' activists took to the streets of Edinburgh after a man was banned from taking snaps in the area, questioning why no warning signs were in place to inform people of the rule.
