Parking on my street is so bad that I gave up driving so I wouldn’t have to fight for a spot

NEIGHBORS found it difficult to park on her quiet street – one even claimed she gave up driving because of it.

Locals in Grantham, Lincolnshire don’t believe emergency services could come down the road should the need arise.

Vehicles are parked on both sides of Sidney Street, and in the evenings, when it gets crowded, the engines rev up.

One resident, Carol McNulty, even gave up driving when she moved to the area because the one-way parking was so bad.

She said: “I’m not sure because the garbage men always come down here I’m not sure if it’s a problem but in the evening it might be difficult for a fire engine to get down here.

“When I came here I stopped driving because there was no way I was going to park on that street.”

Other locals believe students use the street to park, as do those visiting the Masonic Hall.

The surrounding streets, Chambers Street and Albion Road, have similar problems.

James Cook, 28, tells LincolnshireLive: “It gets really crowded down here.”

Rowland Ekwulugo, 83, added: “I don’t use a car because I’m retired, but I have visitors who have a car. It’s a relatively narrow street, so it can be difficult when it’s busy.

“But people are reasonable. When the garbage collectors come, they park their cars on the sidewalk.”
