City centre residents angered at car parking obstructions

Newry Neighbourhood Policing Team are asking motorists to show consideration for residents living in the Drumalane Road and Glen Hill area of the city.
Police have received a number of complaints regarding parking in the area. Motorists are parking in these areas for long periods of time preventing residents from parking outside their own homes.
The cars are also being parked on footpaths and close to junctions which is preventing wheelchair and pushchair access meaning the local community are being forced to walk on roads.
Speaking to Newry Times, Constable Evans explained, “Motorists may not realise the difficulties they are causing, but local residents are becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of consideration being shown.
“We have been working with DRD to look at solutions to this problem, however I would ask motorists to show consideration and give a little thought to the people who live in this area. Motorists should make sure they are not parked in a dangerous position or causing an obstruction.
He added, “Parking on zig zag yellow lines or in a dangerous positions is dealt with by way of fixed penalty notice or report to the Public Prosecution Service. We will be conducting patrols in the local area to monitor the situation.”
