"Yes it is. I don't like it. I need to change my tyres but they are wearing out faster with the leaves. I can tell because I can hear the rubbery com-plunk noise when I run over sticks and bottles hiding underneath the piles of leaves. You…"

"ITs against the law to stop here like this. I am very sure this area has zig-zags because its a pedestrian crossing with a bike crossing next to it. Im really tired of the G4S and bank vans parking in the cycle lane."

"Is s.137 HA 1980 a parking offence? It is Obstruction of Traffic (on footways & carriageways) and was originally part of s.72 HA1835, but this was simplified with HA1980 creating this and another separate offence from the original s.72. If not a…"
