NEW YELLOW PERIL ON THE PAVEMENTS OF PENARTH

Painting the town yellow. Extra yellow lines have now been painted onto the pavements in some parts of Penarth- as here in Ludlow Lane – although comparatively few drivers know what they’re for

New double yellow lines have recently appeared on some Penarth pavements – painted at right angles to the normal double-yellows on the road.

The new extra markings have sent ever-conscientious local drivers digging into their glove-boxes to consult dog-eared copies of the Highway Code and discover what they actually mean.

Double-yellow kerb markers - now installed in Penarth - mean "no unloading at any time". Single markers mean unloading is ok within the times on nearby notices

Double-yellow kerb markers – now installed in Penarth – mean “no unloading at any time”. Single markers mean unloading is ok within the times on nearby notices

Some of the new kerblines are double – others are single. A single yellow kerb-marking on  indicates that loading or unloading is prohibited at particular times – (which should be displayed on a black and white sign nearby) .A double dollop of yellow paint on the kerb means that  no loading or unloading at any time.

Motorists are still allowed to stop on double yellow lines  – even those with kerb markers – such as those now installed in Ludlow Lane – to allow passengers to alight.

Critics say that although the extra yellow paint markers may be a legal requirement, it does nothing for the overall look of the Penarth Conservation Area .

    They also mean even those with disabled stickers can’t park .

  2. There’s plenty of parking for the disabled. The only thing is I’ve seen the enforcers ignore vans parked on them, delivering or not.

    Usual issue in Penarth – enforcement

    Drivers here take full advantage when not punished. A few extra yellow splodges of paint wont deter most.

  4. Anne Greagsby says:

    Maybe a purge on motorists is planned? However its clear that the Vale ‘highways’ are a law onto themselves and have no regard for Penarth conservation areas.

  5. Chris David says:

    I thought they were for push bikes to park in between 🙂 Lycra Yellow and too narrow for cars.

  6. Can we sometime have a count of the number of metal posts in Penarth town centre , as there a quite a few unused ones I know this was not the topic concerned here . But how much can be said about blobs of yellow paint for a reason that wont be enforced. Count how many people a week park almost on the zebra crossing on Plassey St outside the fish shop and how often Penarth Taxis park across the dropped pavement outside the laundry, never mind any blind people/person or wheelchair users that may come along.
