'Intimidating' notes left on vehicles parked in Dorchester

First published in News

DORCHESTER Police have received a number of complaints about notes that ‘could be seen as threatening or intimidating’ left on cars parked in Alfred Road.

The county town’s safer neighbourhood team has reported that vehicle owners parking in the road are returning to their vehicles to find the notes left on their windscreens.

After investigating the reports officers were able to track down the person responsible for leaving the notes and say they have visited the local resident and strongly advised them about their actions.

PCSO Glen Caddy said: “We do not support the notes being left.

“Those parking their vehicles in the area have every right to do so and shouldn't find themselves being intimidated.

“However, please be mindful of local residents and ensure that your vehicle doesn’t cause any obstructions.”

I have a better idea for our local constabulary - get out on the streets in all of Dorset, and stop these prats parking in positions that make emergency service access very difficult, especially for the fire service. the last thing the fire fighters need is to be spending time 'rocking' cars and other vehicles off of the road so that they can get through. By the time they finish moving the car or cars, there could be someone dead in a fire that could have been saved, but for the inconsiderate people parking in the wrong place. many many times, I have seen roads blocked to fire engines where people have parked on both sides of a road, where one side has double yellow lines.

I totally agree, people should park correctly, not blocking the road or obstructing residents driveways etc. However, the attitude of some people if you park in a free road is digusting, you would think they own it.

You don't own the road, if you don't like people parked outside your "gaff", you should not have moved there. Perhaps the Police need to come and have a word with you as well.

Is this an admission of the dastardly deed Dave ?
Was this new pro-active attack on citizens parking sanctioned from command headquarters in Poundbury ?
LOL.
