What a busy week it’s been in the UK with the bank holiday, the Royal Baby and the Elections. For me in my role it’s been business as usual and I was working on Monday which was a busy day with lots of you out and about making the most of the lovely Bank Holiday weather (I hope you all found my post last week useful and remembered to check the restrictions before parking!).
This morning I met up with some of my colleagues who work in Harlow and they showed me an email they’d had from a local resident thanking them for issuing Penalty Charge Notices to vehicles which had been parked on double yellow lines overnight causing a hazard and nuisance to road users and residents. It’s always nice to get a compliment and I was really pleased for my colleagues and for the NEPP, as so often people forget that the reason parking restrictions exist and that we enforce them is to keep the roads throughout north Essex safe, accessible and free from congestion and it’s great to hear this being acknowledged.
