YA55VDY in Monty

We are great fans of the delivery van YA55VDY. It does an invaluable service -bringing short lifespan dairy products to the little shops in the city, helping them resist the overwhelming giants of (Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys). What we also like is the fact that we have never, ever, seen it park legally.

Some people may think this is a policy decision by the driver, but we think its a direct consequence of those corner shops being on corners, on popular roads (with bike lanes and double yellow lines), and on routes that pedestrians use. The driver has no choice!

Today we see how YA55VDY has been forced to park in the middle of Picton Street. Not on a pavement, not on double yellow lines. Not inconveniencing pedestrians, and by reducing through traffic, making Montpelier a nicer part of the city to live in.
