Viewpoint: Delay in removing abandoned lorry shouldn’t be happening
- Credit: Archant
Early in May as the local election results were being digested a white lorry was dumped in Eastferry Road on the Isle of Dogs. It is badly parked and intrudes on double yellow lines.
It is close to the point where buses turn onto other roads. In short it is an obstruction and potentially a hazard.
I, along with residents, have reported this to the council. After several weeks the council have confirmed that the lorry is an obstruction, is abandoned and should be off the road but are waiting for DVLA agents to remove the vehicle.
Why is there this delay?
How many people have received parking tickets over the past seven weeks or had vehicles towed away?
You may also want to watch:
Few of these are causing the obstruction this abandoned lorry is causing over several weeks.
Is it any wonder that there is growing disillusion amongst the population over governmental bodies when something as simple as removing a vehicle causing an obstruction goes on and on?
