Extension to double yellow lines

Reported via desktop in the Sign (unlit) category anonymously at 16:11, Wednesday 28 July 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 402292.

I have been occurring several instances over the past few years of trying to get out of my driveway (mainly during school collection and drop off times) where myself and my neighbour have been unable to get out of our driveway due to cars being parked across our driveway. There have been instances when the cars have been left and we have had to try and locate the owners to remove their cars so that we can leave our household resulting in us being late for work. I also struggle to get into the property as on other occasions being next to the Snooker Club customers have parked across my driveway blocking access.

There was one instance where due to cars being parked outside my property, as I live on a corner, that the fire engine struggled to get through, as due to cras being parked both sides there is not enough room for 2 way traffic to pass through that section of the road. Coming out of my property the bend is very tight and with cars sometimes being parked very close either side of my driveway, this makes this even more difficult to see any oncomign traffic that I may be pulling out into. It woudl be helpful if the double yellow lines could be contiuned to past my property and to around the bend past the snooker club to avoid obstructing view and dangerous parking which has previosuly hindered an emergency vehicle passign through. This issue has been going on for the past 5 years I have lived at the property but I do feel this is getting worse and I would not like to think that because I have not brought up this issue it woudl result in a delay to someone getting an emergency vechile, an incident caused by poor visibilty and parking or a child getting knocked over.
