The St Werburgh's Van Problem

A photo comes to us of the note left on van windscreen's encouraging them to attend the discussion on the van problem.

One issue we hope was raised there is how the presence of all the vans along the street forces the driving instructors to use the bike lane area of the tunnel as the place to practise pavement parking.
A well-established company like Keith's Driving School in their car KU07BGY wouldn't deliberately teach their students to park in a bike lane without even putting the hazard lights on; that's one of the things you have to remember not to do during the test. Yet by choosing to live in these quiet streets, the van owners are forcing L-plate learners to learn things they aren't ready to do yet.
