Hope Valley Police SNT has issued an appeal after an Volkswagen was found parked illegally, over a white line, in Peak District at the weekend.

The driver left their car half on the grass verge – on the road bend and was fined.

A spokesperson for Hope Valley Police SNT said: “Not only does this cause unnecessary obstruction on the highway which is dangerous, especially on a bend, but it ruins the grass verge.
The car park being full is not an excuse for dangerous parking – Think before you park. Other cars being parked there is also not an excuse - don’t follow the crowd.”

Officers have also reminded drivers that it is illegal to cross a continuous solid white line if the solid line is on your side of the road.
