Guernsey Police target cars for sale on the Bridge

Post by GD on Fri 04 Nov 2011, 10:56 pm

Guernsey Police are cracking down on people leaving their cars for sale in long-stay parking areas on the Bridge.

Officers said vehicles being displayed for sale and left over time was a problem across the island.

Two traffic wardens have been tasked with enforcing parking laws on the Bridge after complaints from those living nearby.

Traffic Sgt John Tostevin said those taking up the spaces unfairly were behaving thoughtlessly.

He said: "We are a small island, the spaces being used are used by residents and we all have to live together.

'Free up spaces'

"Residents in the area have been complaining that they have no spaces available to them for overnight parking.

"Also a number of local car dealers have complained about the number of vehicles that are being advertised for sale in the area.

"I've instructed the traffic wardens to carry out enforce concerning vehicles that are parked over time, because it is only a 10-hour disc park.

"These vehicles that are being advertised for sale are being left longer than a 10-hour period and the enforcement is being carried out to free up the spaces for residents and shoppers."

Maybe the States should adopt the new UK requirement that cars must be taxed at all times, whether in use and on the road or not. Then there would be legal grounds for seizing and crushing abandoned cars.

The police cannot just ignore enforcement of law just on their own say so. If a complaint is made, about an untaxed vehicle say, they are legally obliged to investigate and take appropriate action.

Ah, that was your mistake. Now you have no control over vehicles in Guernsey. You have effectivly removed any means the police have of stopping this practice. So stop blaming the Police and blame the States. The Cobo car park fiasco come to mind.

The tax issue is a bit of a red herring, as the vehicles are now fitted with insurance discs.

OK, so the Police do have something to work on, good. But it is still down to the States to ensure the Police are doing their job, and if necessary provide any extra legislation that the Police need to sort the problem.
