ILLEGAL parking at the Panda Corner at Pearse Street and John Street in Gorey, is not only causing a serious traffic hazard, but is also destroying the footpaths, Gorey Town Council was told last week.
Cllr. Darren Keegan told the meeting that when a lorry parks illegally at the corner, it is 'deadly dangerous.'
He said that children are peeping out from behind the truck, trying to cross, and cars are also edging out from John Street, to look for oncoming traffic.
He suggested writing to businesses in the area, asking them not to allow deliveries to park at the junction.
He told the meeting that a woman, who got a parking ticket in a car park, brought him down to the corner. 'She showed me the illegal parking there, and she ate me. What could I say?' he asked.
