Parking strife as new Friday rules catch out drivers in Dovercourt
10:00am Wednesday 23rd April 2014 in News
PARKING outrage has returned to a town centre, as new restrictions are targeting unaware drivers.
Calls have been made for parking fines issued days after the new rules came into force in Dovercourt to be revoked.
Drivers parking in bays in Kingsway and Station Road, in Dovercourt, have been caught out by new restrictions, which mean they cannot park there on a Friday.
Councillor for Harwich East Central, Garry Calver, said: “I share the view that, in the early weeks of this new restriction, the operatives should have been instructed to act in an advisory and educational manner rather than in a punitive one."
