A NUMBER of fixed charge notices for illegal and dangerous parking were issued over the weekend to motorists parked in Glendalough and the Sally Gap.
The mild weather saw lots of people attempting to visit Glendalough over the weekend, and while the car parks weren’t at capacity, people still parked their cars in a manner which blocked the flow of traffic and restricted emergency service vehicles accessing the area if required.
Superintendent Declan McCarthy said: “The announcement on Friday that certain restrictions would be lifted seemed to have a very instant impact on the numbers visiting the uplands area, and Glendalough in particular. A lot of fixed charges to illegally and dangerously parked car which were causing an obstruction. There was adequate parking available in Glendalough over the weekend and the car parks weren’t near capacity, yet some people still chose to park badly in a manner that blocks the traffic flow in the area.”
