Parking and obstruction along University Road
The large ‘bendy buses’ are now regularly providing a service along University Road. Following a number of complaints and accidents along University Road, the City Council and the Police will now be issuing tickets to drivers who park or stop outside the permitted areas. Leicestershire Constabulary retain the powers to deal with highway obstruction matters; highway obstruction and dangerous parking will remain criminal offences and the police can prosecute for these offences regardless of the presence or not of waiting restrictions.
Please be aware that dropping off/picking up, obstructing a junction including Entrance 1 and Mayor's Walk, parking or stopping outside the marked parking bays and on single yellow lines before 6.00pm will all be considered an offence and liable to a fine and/or prosecution.
