Residents, motorists and primary school children in Swanwick, Derbyshire have experienced dangerous situations as a result of irresponsible parking on Pentrich Road that obstructs the view of oncoming traffic when entering/exiting New Street. 

New Street in Swanwick, Derbyshire has seen an unprecedented increase in road traffic during school start/finish times, and is used by primary school children on their daily commute to and from Swanwick Primary School. I believe that the safety of these children, in addition to local residents and road users, is threatened by the unsafe parking of irresponsible road users on the Pentrich Road/New Street junction.

Pentrich Road has a number of white hatch-markings at the end of parking bays to indicate no-parking zones nearer to the busy New Street junction. Nonetheless, motorists are consistently ignoring these markings and are parking in these areas, which obstructs the view of oncoming traffic when entering/exiting New Street. These motorists are completely oblivious to the danger they are causing to other motorists and pedestrians.

Because of the continuing and increasing hazard caused by this situation, I am concerned that a serious road traffic accident is imminent. 

I ask residents and other users of this junction to support and sign this petition calling on the bodies mentioned to take URGENT action. We require clearer road markings and signage (namely double-yellow lines) to ensure road users are aware that it is NOT acceptable to obstruct the view of oncoming traffic at a busy road junction.
