RE “Taxi driver’s frustration” page 3, 8/4/16
I sympathise with the drivers’ frustration at motorists who park on the taxi ranks by Morrisons and at the station.
However the rank at the lower end of Broad Street [illustrated in the article] is an entirely different matter.
It is rarely used by waiting taxis at any time of the day. Some residents claim never to have seen a taxi there!
It is very frustrating for drivers who want to make a quick stop at the adjoining shops to see the 4/5 spaces there empty.
I plead guilty to parking there first thing in the morning for papers, milk, etc, rather than risk a single or double line.
I am guessing the shops would agree a short stay limit here would be a good compromise, perhaps with one taxi space.
Don’t start me on taxis parking on the pavement across double lines behind Morrisons!
