Thank you for parking zones

Bexhill Observer letters

From: R Ward, Byfields Croft, Bexhill

Clearly marked with zig-zag lines either side of black and white stripes across the road, they offer a new concept in zonal parking. They even allow for vehicles to park side by side instead of in a line behind one another.

One thing that amazes me though is the stupidity of pedestrians who, seeing the clearly marked parking area, attempt to cross the road by stepping out behind the parked vehicles into the path of unsuspecting oncoming traffic.

Perhaps the council could provide wardens, stationed at these new parking zones, to warn pedestrians that they could be fined for jaywalking if they persist in putting motorists in danger.
