Road cops in Glasgow have slammed a driver's 'selfish and illegal' parking.

Officers say they spotted a motor allegedly parked on a crossing on Duke Street in the East End on Wednesday, May 29.

According to the force, the motorist's actions 'severely impacted' the 'safe space' that the crossing provides - especially for vulnerable pedestrians such as children.

Hitting out at the road users' parking spot, cops said parking on a 'zig-zag' area is 'selfish' and 'illegal.

Due to this, the driver was handed three penalty points and a £100 fine.

 

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: "Glasgow Road Policing spotted this car parked on a crossing earlier.

"Some would say this is minor stuff, but the driver’s actions severely impact the safe space' that the crossing provides; especially for vulnerable pedestrians such as children.

"Parking within the 'Zig Zag' area of a pedestrian crossing is selfish and illegal.

"It severely impacts the view of both pedestrians that are crossing and drivers approaching the crossing.

"This driver was dealt with via fixed penalty notice and now has three penalty points and a £100 fine for their efforts."
