A set of double yellow lines less than a metre long have been introduced in Bristol that have been labelled as ‘ludicrous’. Anti-RPZ campaigner Michael Owen tweeted a picture of a toy racing car alongside the short section of lines. He argued that it would be virtually impossible to park anything in the space, it’s even too small for a Smart car.
A Bristol City Council spokeswoman said the lines would make sure “appropriate access for emergency services, refuse lorries and delivery vehicles and give residents enough space to get in and out of driveways and garages’.
Those in favour of the measures, which are to be introduced city-wide, believe they will make it easier to park outside their home.
