Dangerous parking

Reported via desktop in the Highway Enforcement category anonymously at 16:41, Tuesday 12 April 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Parking on the bend (next to the bowls club) is currently legal but highly dangerous. Vehicles driving up the road on the left hand side must overtake parked vehicles on a blind bend. Several times I have been faced with an oncoming vehicle on the opposite side of the road which has had to do an emergency stop to avoid running into me. I imagine there are near collisions every day. There is not enough room for two cars to pass which leads to delay and confrontation, especially when two lines of traffic make it difficult to back up. All this could be avoided if the double yellow lines continued all the way around the corner. There is plenty of alternative parking (in the Rec ground car park and in nearby side roads)
