Victoria St

Reported via mobile in the Parking on double yellow lines category anonymously at 01:56, Saturday 24 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5623140.

Parents are parking on double yellow lines from the bend in Victoria St all the way to the junction with Tring Rd. The road is reduced to one lane for two-way traffic with no visibility for drivers. Some drivers are also stopping or waiting in the other lane to pick up multiple passengers. Usually only a few meters into Victoria St. Drivers doing this are stopping suddenly at the pedestrian entrance to Tesco to collect passengers. Vehicles entering Victoria St behind them are forced to stop suddenly and to hang out onto the Tring Rd. Children are getting in cars and walking across the road without looking. It is getting increasingly dangerous as cars trying to exit Victoria St have to reverse back round the bend in the wrong lane to let incoming cars proceed. Reversing cars have to go over the crossing point used by pedestrians on Victoria St and back round the bend without being able to see properly whilst children are wandering around. Incoming cars cannot reverse as they would have to reverse onto the Tring Rd. This situation has got worse recently and is becoming increasingly dangerous. A safer place needs to be used to collect children.
