Oxted Parking - Nursery Road

Oxted Nursery Road

This photograph is the one that triggered the unpleasant incident with the man with yobbish tendencies. I took it in Nursery Way in Oxted. As a private road it does not appear on all maps (e.g. Streetmap) but it is visible on Google Earth), and I wonder if the friendly parking attendants will be able to enforce the private parking regulations on this road. If there is money to be generated in issuing parking tickets then I am sure that the answer is yes.

As I took this photograph I felt quite sorry for the motorists who had parked there. I had discovered that there was no parking available in the designated spaces in the town centre as they were all full. When the man came and suggested he would kick my teeth in, my compassion faded: I saw the immediate benefits of a zero tolerance approach to crime. Prosecute the bastards for parking on yellow lines, before they move onto more serious crimes, like kicking teeth!

On a more serious note, I was concerned that down this private road is a nursery school. If there was any urgent incident the car of the man with yobbish tendencies would potentially be blocking access by the emergencies services: fire department, ambulance, etc.
