Warning signs will regulate 30 minute parking rule in Cornwall

Warning signs in a Cornwall town will be improved to enforce a parking regulation.

According to the Packet, motorists are only allowed to park on the side of the road in Penryn for 30 minutes, but the signage indicating this rule isn't visible enough.

At a recent council meeting, councillors were informed that the relevant signage is not on a post, meaning drivers are parking on the side of the road for longer than they should do.

Cornwall Council will now provider better signage.

The newspaper quoted mayor and councillor Mary May as saying: "A lot of vehicles that park there are there for one or two days and this will free up spaces for those who want to shop in the town."

Recently, the dangers of firms failing to implement warning signs was highlighted when a man managed to bring legal action against a clamping business.

Allan Acheson was clamped when he parked at a takeaway in Havant in 2008. However, he argued in court that there were no warning signs at the entrance to the car park on the day he visited it, and won the case.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800284093-ADNFCR
