I WAS walking home from work on Tuesday last week and at about 5.45pm I got to the fish and chip shop at the New Barns Road and Newnham Street junction in Ely.

I couldn’t believe what I saw at the junction going up New Barns Road. There were six cars all parked on double-yellow lines up to the playing field side gate.

I saw cars attempting to turn into this junction and having to slam on the brakes due to these very inconsiderate, arrogant drivers.

Firstly, why ignore the double-yellow lines? Secondly, why ignore the Highway Code and park right at the mouth of a busy junction?

There has been a lot of negative press about cyclists these days, so maybe a bit a common sense and law abiding from the lazy, junk-food-scoffing car driving fraternity wouldn’t go amiss either!
